Animal appoints new chief executive

Boardsports business Animal has appointed Kevin Keaney as chief executive.

He joined Aminal as interim retail director last year and helped sales grow 30% like-for-like at the business' stores. He was appointed interim chief executive in June when chief executive John Stockton left the company.

Keaney has previously held senior management positions at Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury's and Somerfield.

He said that he wanted to lead the Animal team through its next stage of growth and to fully realise the potential of the brand.
