Dunelm adds to board

Dunelm has moved to strengthen its board, recruiting executives with backgrounds in betting and online as non-executive directors.

Dan Taylor is ceo at gaming group Flutter International, where he is responsible for all the group’s international brands. He was previously PaddyPowerBetfair ceo.

Ajay Kavan is a senior advisor to investment firm, KKR, and a member of the advisory panel to Piper Private Equity. He serves in a non-executive capacity on the board of e-grocery firm Rohlik Group and was Matches Fashion ceo from 2020 to 2021 and an Amazon vice president from 2011 to 2020, including the launch of Amazon Fresh in Europe/Asia.

‘I am very pleased to welcome Ajay and Dan to Dunelm. Their appointments reflect our ongoing focus on ensuring effective board composition and complementary skill sets. Ajay’s experience across a range of well-known retailers strengthens our board as we continue to drive multi-channel growth across our total retail system. Dan’s experience, particularly in the delivery of digital growth strategies in consumer-facing businesses, will add further expertise and value as we continue to evolve and improve our customer proposition. I look forward to working with them both,’ says Alison Brittain, Dunelm chair.

Both will take up their roles from 1 March.
