M&S poaches Dixons Carphone finance chief

Marks & Spencer has appointed Dixons Carphone group finance director Humphrey Singer as its new chief finance officer, replacing Helen Weir.

Singer’s start date has not yet been confirmed. Weir’s final day in the role will be 31 March 2018.

Singer joined Dixons in 2011 ahead of its merger with Carphone Warehouse in 2014. He is also currently a non-executive director at Taylor Wimpey.

Prior to this, his roles included finance positions at Cadbury Schweppes plc and Coca-Cola Enterprises in the UK.  

Steve Rowe, chief executive at M&S, said: “As we embark on our five-year transformation programme, Humphrey will be a great addition to the top team. His experience as part of the team that led Dixons through its period of change and migration to multi-channel retailer is most relevant to what we are undertaking here.

“This, coupled with his retail expertise and eye for detail and cost, will be very important to our team dynamic as we move forward.”

Singer added: “Under Steve, M&S is changing and there’s no better time to be joining the team that is transforming the business.”
