BRC appoints Tony DeNunzio as chairman elect
The British Retail Consortium has appointed Tony DeNunzio as chairman elect.
He will succeed Richard Pennycook when he steps down at the end of his tenure on 20 May.
With over 25 years’ experience in the retail industry, DeNunzio has worked within the food, fashion, department store, DIY and specialty retail sectors both in the UK and overseas.
His previous roles include being president and chief executive of Asda, a non-executive director of Alliance Boots and chairman of Pets at Home. He is currently deputy chairman of Dixons Carphone.
At the BRC, he will work with chief executive Helen Dickinson as the organisation supports the retail sector throughout the coronavirus crisis.
Dickinson said: “Tony joins the BRC at a crucial time for retail and I look forward to working with him as we continue to deal with the effects of the crisis and the challenges we will face as public health restrictions start to be lifted and retailers get back to delivering for their customers again.
“I would like to thank Richard Pennycook for his excellent support over the last two years, and particularly through the coronavirus crisis, and pay tribute to his leadership. During this time, we have launched BRC Learning, established ourselves as a leading voice on Brexit and trade policy, and invested in improving our offer, putting member value at the heart of everything we do and helping us welcome over 30 new retail businesses into membership.”
