Furniture Village looks within for board appointments

Furniture Village has promoted a host of senior executives to its board. 

The appointments come weeks after the Harrison family became sole shareholders.

Peter Harrison, Furniture Village chief executive has moved to the full-time position of executive chairman.

Charlie Harrison, takes on the position of md. 

Nick Hipkiss who held several key operational roles within the business was previously HR Director, also takes over responsibility for retail and succeeds Harrison as commercial director. 

Eamon Wynne, previously finance director has become cfo, while Mike Broughton remains as chief information officer.

After 20 years at the chain, Claudia Cooper has been appointed as multi-channel director. During the past few years, Cooper led the move into multi-channel marketing and communications. 

David Ayers has become operations director, taking responsibility for both fulfilment and customer care, while Stephen Sing has been appointed director of customer experience.

‘Internal promotions may be typical in family businesses, but less common in those with around 1,200 employees, 55 stores, 17 fulfilment centres and an annual turnover of c£400m. It is only possible because we have an exceptionally skilled and well-qualified team,’ says Peter Harrison. 

‘Our senior team has consistently delivered year-on-year commercial growth whilst successfully delivering against our ambitious strategic plans. 

It is their combination of knowledge, experience and commitment that continues to ensure Furniture Village remains ready for its next phase of growth.’
