B&Q loses customer director, Steve Robinson, to Achica

Achica, the member-only online luxury lifestyle store, has appointed former B&Q customer director Steve Robinson to the newly created position of chief operating officer.

Working closely with Achica co-founder and chief executive Will Cooper, Robinson will have wide ranging responsibilities across the business including developing operations to align with Achica's international business strategy.

Prior to B&Q, Robinson was chief executive of Tesco Direct, finance director at Argos and chief executive of online fashion retailer M and M Direct.

Commenting on the appointment, Cooper said: “We are very pleased that Steve is joining our team at this exciting stage in our development. Achica continues to grow strongly both in the UK and across key markets in Europe and so we feel that this is the right time to bring someone of Steve’s operational background into the business. Steve has a proven track record in developing corporate strategy and growing organisations while overseeing on-going operations.

“We look forward to him injecting his considerable knowledge and experience into ACHICA and being instrumental in driving the business forward.”
