JJB’s chief exec Chris Ronnie, suspended in January, has tendered his resignation – but according to a statement on the firm’s corporate website, that resignation has not been accepted by the JJB board.
The statement, posted last week, said: “JJB confirms that Christopher Ronnie has tendered a letter of resignation conditional upon reaching agreement on the terms of a settlement. No such agreement has been reached and accordingly Mr Ronnie's resignation is not effective.
“JJB continues to reserve its contractual and other rights in respect of Mr Ronnie,” the statement continues.
Ronnie was suspended at the start of the year following an ‘ongoing investigation’.
