Dixons Carphone appoints Bruce Marsh as group chief financial officer
Dixons Carphone has hired Bruce Marsh as its group chief financial officer.
Due to take up his position on 12 July, Marsh has been working as Tesco’s finance director for the UK and Ireland since 2015. Prior to that, he worked with Kingfisher where he was managing director of Kingfisher Future Homes and group strategy director. He also previously held a number of senior finance roles at Dixons Retail.
Alex Baldock, Dixons Carphone chief executive, said: “I am delighted to welcome Bruce back home to Dixons Carphone. He brings a strong track record over many years in retail, and in the successful delivery of large complex business transformations in rapidly changing environments. He has extensive experience leading high-quality Finance teams, maintaining robust financial controls and improving planning and performance. Bruce has played a pivotal role in Tesco’s revitalisation.”
Meanwhile Jonny Mason, Dixons current group chief financial officer, will remain in his existing role for a while to support the company through the current financial year and to ensure an orderly transition. A departure date has yet to be confirmed.
Baldock added: “Jonny has been an outstanding leader at Dixons Carphone. He’s made a big contribution to the great strides we’ve made in our transformation, particularly in UK Mobile, to a stronger balance sheet, and to a sharper focus on cash and cost control. This will serve the group well as we continue to build on these achievements.”
