Currys has announced Asos chair Ian Dyson will join the company as chair of the electronics retailer.
Dyson will succeed Ian Livingston by joining the board as chair on 8 September, when Livingston will step down from the board.
The Asos chair has decades of experience of retail and leisure, including a five-year stint as finance and operations director at Marks & Spencer, and a brief time heading Punch Taverns as chief executive in 2010.
Dyson will also step down as a non-executive director of Intercontinental Hotels Group in February 2023.
“Currys is a clear market leader with trusted brands in every market in which it operates. It has a leading presence in exciting product categories which are increasingly vital to consumers’ daily lives, and the success with which it navigated the Covid-19 pandemic is testament to the quality and commitment of its thousands of colleagues,” incoming chair Dyson said.
