Finance Director Chris Lucas of Barclays PLC will be leaving the bank half a year sooner than expected due to ill-health, the bank announced on Wednesday.

Mr. Lucas was due to exit his position on the board on the last day of February, 2014, but will be moving his departure this Friday. Lucas, who is 52, did not explain his decision other than to say it is for “health reasons.”

“My health was a key factor behind my decision to step down which we announced in February. Whilst I had hoped to be able to continue working until early next year,” Lucas said in a statement.
