Sir David Jones retires from JJB Sports

JJB Sports has announced that Sir David Jones has retired from the board of the sports retailer with immediate effect due to ill health.

Jones first joined the JJB Sports board as a non-executive director in 2007, before becoming deputy chairman in 2008, then executive chairman at the start of 2009. He then stepped back to a non-executive role in January this year, following the appointment of Keith Jones as chief executive.

JJB said in a statement: “Sir David played a crucial role as executive chairman during 2009 at a time when the company was close to administration, leading the company through a succession of transactions and initiatives to secure its survival and to create a platform for growth. The board places on record its enormous thanks to Sir David for everything he has achieved with the company.”
