Dobbies Garden Centres has appointed David Robinson as its new chief executive.
Robinson has joined the business from Pets at Home where he worked as chief operating officer for over four years. Prior to that, he held managing director roles at Bestway Retail and Conviviality, and also worked as chief operating officer at Argos where he led the retailer’s digital transformation.
Jenkins said: “After seven transformative years, I am delighted that David has taken over the reins as CEO. I am confident he will take the business through its next stage of growth and I wish him and the team the very best for the future.”
The board of Dobbies added: “We are pleased to welcome David to Dobbies. With his retail experience and focus on customers and colleagues, he will be a fantastic asset to the business as we continue our growth.
“We would like to thank Graeme for his invaluable work, leading the business through its transformation into the UK’s number one garden centre operator more than doubling its size, its re-platforming and navigating the challenges of the Covid period.”
