Dunelm hires Karen Witts as chief financial officer

Dunelm Group has appointed Karen Witts as it new chief financial officer.

Due to join the Dunelm board on 9 June, she will succeed Laura Carr who will step down on the previous day.

Until October 2021, Witts was chief financial officer at Compass Group, the multinational contract food, hospitality and support services company. Prior to that, she held the same role at B&Q owner Kingfisher and also previously worked in a number of senior finance, strategic and operational roles within Vodafone.

Nick Wilkinson, chief executive of Dunelm, said: “I am delighted that we have been able to attract someone of Karen’s calibre to join our Board and Executive team. Her vast experience across global retail and consumer-facing businesses will be hugely beneficial as we work to achieve our ambitious growth plans to become a leading multichannel retailer and our customers’ first choice for home.”

Witts added: “It’s very exciting to be returning to the retail industry to join the Dunelm team. As the market leader in homewares, Dunelm is a brand I have admired for some time and its strong purpose, culture and expanding customer offer makes it a compelling proposition. The team has exciting plans for continued growth and I look forward to getting started.”
