The Very Group promotes Robbie Feather to group chief executive role

The Very Group has promoted retail managing director Robbie Feather to the position of group chief executive.

A former chief executive of Fenwick, Feather joined The Very Group in 2021 and has recently overseen the development of the company’s new brand platform.

In addition to Fenwick, he previously held a range of roles at Sainsbury’s Argos, including commercial director on the Argos board.

In his new role, he has succeeded Lionel Desclée who has chosen to step down to pursue new opportunities.  Feather will also join the group’s board and lead its executive team.

Aidan Barclay, The Very Group’s chairman, said: “Robbie has proven to be an outstanding retail leader, both at The Very Group and throughout his career. He understands our business intimately and has a strong track record of transformation and growth. He is the perfect person to lead the next stage of The Very Group’s development.

“On behalf of the board, I want to thank Lionel for his strong, customer-focused leadership. We wish him the very best in his future endeavours.”

Desclée added: “It has been a privilege to lead this innovative and committed team in delighting our customers. I am proud of our achievements and believe that under Robbie’s leadership, the company will continue to succeed.”
