Marks & Spencer appoints chief finance officer
Marks & Spencer has appointed Humphrey Singer as its new chief finance officer.
Currently group finance director at Dixons Carphone, Singer will take up his new position once a start date has been confirmed.
He will replace Helen Weir who, as previously announced, is leaving M&S to pursue a portfolio career.
Singer has been in his current role at Dixons Carphone since 2014 following the merger of Dixons Retail with Carphone Warehouse Group. Having joined Dixons in 2007, he was appointed as group finance director in 2011. His earlier career includes finance roles at Cadbury Schweppes and Coca-Cola Enterprises UK. He is currently a non-executive director at Taylor Wimpey.
Steve Rowe, M&S chief executive, said: “As we embark on our five-year transformation programme, Humphrey will be a great addition to the top team. His experience as part of the team that led Dixons through its period of change and migration to multichannel retailer is most relevant to what we are undertaking here. This, coupled with his retail expertise and eye for detail and cost, will be very important to our team dynamic as we move forward."
