Publish date:

As the ink dries on the Best Buy deal, three Carphone Warehouse chiefs have stepped down from their positions – reflecting the new ‘autonomy’ of the two firms.

Andrew Harrison, CEO of the UK business leaves the board today, as does CEO of the telecoms business David Goldie. Adrian Martin is retiring as non-executive director.

The news comes alongside the firm’s AGM today. In a statement Charles Dunstone, chief executive officer, said: “From a strategic perspective, the last few months have seen the most important developments in the Group’s history. The transaction with Best Buy has crystallised significant value and leaves the business in a strong financial position. We will provide a detailed update on our plans for the new venture in October.
