He is currently a non-executive director at Mediclinic International and DP Eurasia.
Singer will join the Halfords board on September 16.
He is also slated to become a member of the remuneration, audit and nomination committees and will replace David Adams as chair of the audit committee after a handover period.
“David is a highly regarded non-executive director and we have benefited greatly from his considerable efforts since he joined the board, initially as a director and more recently in his additional roles as chair of the audit committee and as senior independent director,” Halfords chairman Keith Williams said.
“We are grateful to David for the work he has done in these roles.
“Moving forward, we are delighted to welcome Tom to the board. We are sure that he will contribute greatly to the ongoing success of Halfords.”
