Halfords has announced the appointment of Tom Singer as non-executive director, with effect from 16 September.
Singer previously held the position of CFO InterContinental Hotels Group, and British United Provident Association (BUPA).
Earlier in his career, he was CFO and COO of William Hill and finance director of Moss Bros, having started his career in professional services and spending a total of 12 at ‘Big 4’ accountancy firm PwC and McKinsey.
Singer currently serves as non-executive director on the boards of private healthcare services group Mediclinic and DP Eurasia NV, operator of pizza restaurants in Turkey and Russia.
He will become a member of the remuneration, audit and nomination committees upon joining the board, and after an “appropriate” handover period will succeed David Adams as chair of the audit committee.
Keith Williams, Halfords chairman, said: “David is a highly regarded non-executive director and we have benefited greatly from his considerable efforts since he joined the board, initially as a director and more recently in his additional roles as chair of the audit committee and as senior independent director.
“We are grateful to David for the work he has done in these roles. Moving forward, we are delighted to welcome Tom to the board. We are sure that he will contribute greatly to the ongoing success of Halfords.”
