DSG hires ex-Majestic Wine boss

DSG International, which owns the Currys and PC World chains, has drafted in former Majestic Wine boss Tim How as a non-executive director to help it get back on track. How previously led a management buyout of the wine warehouse chain in 1989, taking it through an Aim flotation in 1996 until he eventually left in 2008. DSG last week revealed like-for-like sales fell six per cent over the first 16 weeks of the year, as consumers continue to cut back spending on big-ticket items like televisions in the recession.
