DFS appoints Ian Filby as CEO

DFS has announced that Ian Filby has been appointed to the position of Chief Executive Officer.

Since acquiring the business in April 2010, the shareholders of DFS have been working to find a CEO with the skillset to complement the existing senior team of Richard Baker (Chairman), Jon Massey (COO) and Bill Barnes (CFO).

Ian has thirty years of retail experience, primarily from Alliance Boots plc, where his most recent roles were Retail Brand Development Director and Trading Director.  Until January 2010, Ian was also interim CEO for Nectar, the UK’s leading coalition loyalty programme.

Richard Baker, Chairman, DFS said: “Having worked with Ian at Boots for four years, I have had first-hand experience of his skills and capabilities.  Ian is perfectly suited to the role of CEO of DFS.  His core strengths are in the areas of marketing and brand development, product and range management, store format development as well as online, which are all key elements of the DFS business model.”
