Wickes appoints Andy Morrison as COO

DIY retailer Wickes has appointed Andy Morrison to the newly created position of chief operating officer to drive the retailer’s growth plan.

Morrison takes up the position on January 1 and will retain his present position of managing director of Wickes’ sister company Tile Giant.

Wickes managing director Simon King said: “Andy will be responsible for operational excellence within Wickes as the business drives forward with its growth strategy, ensuring there’s a sharp focus on building and enhancing Wickes’ core strengths, all of which will reinforce and support my leadership as managing director.”

King added that Tile Giant “continues to enjoy success” under Morrison’s leadership.

Morrison’s appointment follows that of Alan Morris, who joined Wickes in April as retail director. Morris replaced Martin Roberts.

Last week parent Travis Perkins revealed flat like-for-likes in its third quarter across its consumer arm, which largely comprises Wickes, due to the “challenging” market.
