The Very Group has announced that it has appointed Robbie Feather, the former CEO of Fenwick, as its newest managing director with effect November 2021.
Feather will succeed Sam Perkins, who will step down at the end of the year after seven years with the operator of very.co.uk.
Henry Birch, chief executive of The Very Group, said: “We are delighted to have attracted someone of Robbie’s calibre to join our executive board. An experienced business leader, Robbie brings substantial expertise in retail and a strong digital and commercial track record.
“Our business is almost unrecognisable from the one that Sam joined in 2014, and his contribution to our transformation and growth has been huge. We will be sad to see him go, but he will leave us in great shape, with a brilliant retail team in place and a strong, clear plan to continue to delight our customers and grow the business over the years ahead.”
