McGregor has 15 years experience in the UK, US and mainland Europe including senior retail positions at Topshop/Topman, Matalan and Specsavers.

A spokesperson for Wilko confirmed that McGregor will join the business on 6th August and will be responsible for ensuring that their stores and store teams are “in the best possible shape” to respond to the needs of customers and the changing retail environment. He will report to Wilko chief operating officer Sean Toal. 

Commenting on the appointment, Toal said: “We’re thrilled that Craig is joining the team. He’s an experienced and talented retail leader who shares our passion for products that simply help and we’re looking forward to working with him to ensure customers have a great experience when and where they shop with us.”
 
The appointment follows the recent news that Alex Russo will be joining Wilko’s senior management team as chief financial officer and executive board director. Russo has been working as chief financial officer of the Asda supermarket chain for the past five years.
 
Family director Lisa Wilkinson said: “We are pleased to be building such a strong leadership team across our entire business to confidently deliver the next chapter in Wilko’s transformation programme.”
