TJ Hughes appoints Beatrice Lafon as Chief Executive

TJ Hughes has announced that Beatrice Lafon has been appointed as Chief Executive in a planned succession, replacing Sue Tennant, who will be leaving at the end of the year.

Beatrice Lafon was previously Chief Executive of Etam Group in the Netherlands, where she dramatically increased the profitability of the group during her time in office. Prior to that, Beatrice held a variety of retail roles including Commercial Director of Woolworths Group Plc.

Neil McCausland, Chairman of TJ Hughes, commented: "We are pleased to have attracted someone of Beatrice's calibre to spearhead the next phase of TJ Hughes' strategic development. Beatrice's experience and leadership skills make her exceptionally well positioned to exploit TJ Hughes' position as a leading force within the UK's quality discount retailing sector.

"We would like to express our appreciation to Sue Tennant who has revived the business over the past three years. She was brought in to the company in August 2007 to turn the business around, which she has successfully
completed."
