The Conran Shop has appointed former Urban Outfitters executive Hugh Wahla to the position of chief executive of Conran Retail & Brand Holdings, the parent company of The Conran Shop.

Wahla was previously managing director of Urban Outfitters Europe, having spent 17 years establishing and growing the business outside of its native USA.
