Furniture Village appoints new board director
Furniture Village has appointed Mike Broughton to its board of directors.
Currently IT and business development director at the company, Broughton has worked with Furniture Village for three years and prior to that held senior IT and IS roles at William Hill, Asda Walmart, Dixons Carphone, the FSA and Barclays Bank.
Peter Harrison, founder and chief executive of Furniture Village, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Mike to the board. In the three years he’s been with us he’s demonstrated countless wins. With his appetite for success and for fun, he’s going to be instrumental in helping us realise our ambitions.”
Speaking of his objectives for 2021, Broughton said he will be looking to drive the company’s performance by equipping senior managers with the skills, tools and techniques to look critically at all areas and implement improvements.
He added: “My role is focused on doing things better as well as doing better things through innovation and technology. The lack of politics and speed of decision-making at FV means that if we spot a commercial opportunity, we go for it. In lockdown, we introduced our new 3D store within four days from idea to execution. It’s exhilarating.”
