Wickes has appointed a new retail director as it “embarks on its journey as a standalone business”.
The home improvement retailer welcomed Carol Campbell to the newly created role of retail director, who will oversee all of the retail operations for Wickes’ 232 stores.
Campbell will report to chief operating officer, Fraser Longden and will start in her new role on 6 January 2022.
Campbell has worked in retail for over 20 years, spending 12 years at Aldi in a range of store operations and corporate roles before travelling to Australia where she worked for grocery retailer, Woolworths for two years.
“It’s really important to me that I work for a company with an inclusive and diverse culture that values and takes care of its people and I can’t wait to join and meet the team,” she said.
Longden said: “Wickes has recently embarked on its journey as a standalone business and I’m delighted that Carol is joining us at this very exciting time.
“Carol’s wealth of experience across retail operations will provide the right level of support and focus at the heart of our business, helping our store colleagues to deliver the best possible experience for our customers so they can feel houseproud.”
