Semlitsh is currently CEO of REMA Industrier which is part of one of Scandinavia’s largest supermarket chains.  He will start his new role on 3 January.

Elkjøp operates over 300 stores and has nearly 9,000 employees across Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland. Last year, Elkjøp reported sales of £2.628 billion and in the first quarter of the new financial year sales were up 13%.

Sebastian James, Dixons Retail group chief executive, said: "I am delighted to welcome Jaan to Dixons Retail. The strength of his retail and customer-facing experience across multiple sectors is superb, and he shares our absolute conviction that our place is shoulder to shoulder with our millions of customers."

I am joining a business with an iconic portfolio of brands which resonate well with customers. I look forward to working with Sebastian and the team to further develop our Nordics business, particularly on the multichannel side."
