Dobbies names Andrew Bracey as new chairman

The Dobbies garden centre chain has appointed Andrew Bracey as its new chairman.

Bracey is a founding partner of Midlothian Capital Partners which together with Hattington Capital recently acquired Dobbies from Tesco for £218 million.

John Cleland, chief executive of Dobbies, said: “Andrew has many years of experience in retail and has a genuine passion for Dobbies, both of which will be of huge benefit to the business as we create a stronger, market leading company. I look forward to working with him again, to grow the business and deliver a success story.”

Bracey has spent much of his career working in the retail industry, most recently as chief financial officer at Ocado where he helped take the company from its early development through to its IPO. As a senior financier, he has also led a number of landmark transactions in the retail sector.
