Royal begins departure journey from ScS
Kevin Royal, ScS md is to leave the upholstery and flooring chain.
He is to leave the retailer after more than 35 years in early 2018.
‘14 months ago I began putting together a succession plan to help future proof the retail senior management team of the ScS business, and this is now in place. Therefore the time is right for me to start to hand over the reins to them, and this I will do over the coming months,’ he said.
‘I wish to thank everyone for their support over many years and I look forward to hopefully watching the business grow from strength to strength.’
‘Kevin has played a key role in building the business and developing the team. He is a great role model and a naturally gifted retailer. On behalf of the entire business I would like to thank Kevin for his contribution and wish him well for the future,’ said David Knight, ScS ceo.
His journey to the ScS boardroom has included managing many of the group's flagship stores before being appointed regional manager in 1997, and then sales director in 1999. He became md last year.
