New Chief Executive for retailTRUST
We are delighted to announce that Chris Brook-Carter, who has led Retail Week and World Retail Congress for almost a decade, formerly as its Editor in Chief and for the last four years as Managing Director, joins retailTRUST in May to replace Richard Boland who retires at the end of April 2020.
Chris brings tremendous experience in the fields of digital, communications and events and is known for his innovative and entrepreneurial approach to business. He is widely respected in the retail and support services sectors.
He joins the Trust at a very exciting time with the roll out of digital smart homes, and the wellbeing portal driving significant growth in both reach and relevance. The digital future of the Trust will benefit from his creative input and knowledge.
Alistair McGeorge commenting on Chris‘s appointment said: “We are pleased to have secured someone with such relevant understanding and knowledge of the future shape and needs of retailing and with the commitment and passion to drive forward the Wellbeing Strategy of the Trust. I am sure you will all join me in welcoming Chris as a colleague.”
Chris stated: “I am absolutely delighted to be joining retailTRUST. I have admired the fantastic work of Richard and the team for many years and believe the services they provide have never been more essential. I very much look forward to working with all my new colleagues to ensure the Trust remains at the heart of how retail excels in its commitments to the welfare of all involved in the sector.”
