Hall’s previous roles include Bupa Home Healthcare managing director, Bupa marketing director, British Airways head of marketing and also chair of Airmiles and BA Holidays.

She has also previously been a Think London non-executive director.

Bradley is currently senior independent director at Howden Joinery Group and worked with Tesco for over 25 years until 2013 in various senior positions – including chief operating officer of the grocer’s website and UK marketing director.

She is now non-executive director of Legal and General Group and also the senior independent director and interim chairman of Marston’s.

“I am delighted that both Tiffany Hall and Carolyn Bradley have agreed to join the board of B&M,” chairman Peter Bamford said.

“Their previous roles as executives in leading consumer facing and retail sector businesses, and their plc experience also as non-executive directors, will bring additional perspectives and depth to our board while our business continues to grow at a significant rate.

“On behalf of the board I would like to thank Harry for his insight and contribution to the board and each of the committees on which he has served since the IPO of the company in 2014, which have overseen continued growth for B&M and a successful transition to public company governance.”
