Currys appoints Ian Dyson as chair
Currys has announced that former Punch Taverns chief executive Ian Dyson is to become its new chair.
Dyson will join the Currys board as a non-executive director on 1 September and will succeed Ian Livingston as chair a week later.
Livingston said: “I will be leaving Currys with sadness as it is a business very close to my heart, but I am delighted to be succeeded by someone of the calibre and experience of Ian Dyson. My time at Currys has been hugely enjoyable. Today’s business is in really good shape; it has a great management team, strategic clarity, strong finances and a very exciting future ahead of it.”
Currently chair of online fashion retailer ASOS, Dyson is also a non-executive director of Intercontinental Hotels Group, but will step down in February 2023. His career has also included a five year stint as group finance and operations director of Marks & Spencer.
Alex Baldock, Currys group chief executive, added: “I am very grateful for the guidance, challenge and support that Ian Livingston has given to Currys, and the role he has played in transforming it into the leading omnichannel retailer of technology products and services it is today. As we continue with our exciting transformation, I am delighted that in Ian Dyson we have found a new chair who will help us continue on our path towards a world class business for colleagues, customers, shareholders and society.”
