Carpetright in board shake-up

FLOORINGS giant Carpetright has restructured its board, appointing Andrew Corden to the board as operations director for Europe as Christian Sollesse, managing director of UK & Ireland, steps down.

Corden joined Carpetright 17 years ago, and has been responsible for the company’s European operations since 2008 having previously been the sales director for Europe since the company’s expansion into Europe.

Claire Balmforth, who joined the board at the beginning of May, will assume the role of operations director for the UK.
