Dunelm hires new chief financial officer

Homewares retailer Dunelm has appointed Laura Carr as its new chief financial officer.

Currently group financial controller at Compass Group, the contract food, hospitality and support services company, Carr will take up her new position in the autumn.

Prior to Compass, where she has worked since February 2017, Carr was chief financial officer of Indigo Books & Music, the Canadian book, gift and speciality toy retailer. Other previous positions iclude a number of senior finance roles within Japan Tobacco.

Carr will replace Keith Down who is stepping down to take up a role closer to his family home. In the meantime, Dunelm’s former chief financial officer David Stead has joined the company as interim chief financial officer to help ensure a smooth transition. This will also enable Down to step down from the board slightly earlier than expected.

Andy Harrison, chairman of Dunelm, said: “We are looking forward to Laura joining the Dunelm team to work with Nick Wilkinson, our new CEO. Laura brings a breadth of business and finance experience, which will really help us to achieve our ambitious business plans to become the leading multichannel retailer in our space.”
