Dunelm Group plc ("Dunelm" or "the Group"), the UK's leading homewares retailer, announces that Laura Carr, Chief Financial Officer, has informed the Board that she will be leaving her role to take up a new opportunity outside of retail and the public markets.

A search for Laura's successor is being initiated and the Board will update as appropriate. It is currently intended that Laura will remain in the business until the beginning of June 2022 to ensure an orderly handover of her responsibilities.

Since its first quarter trading update, announced on 14 October, the Group has continued to see strong trading momentum and will update the market further in its second quarter trading update on 13 January 2022.

Nick Wilkinson, CEO, commented:

"Laura has made a tremendous contribution to Dunelm in her three years with the business, a period in which we have significantly built our digital capabilities and navigated a global pandemic, whilst producing very strong financial results. I would like to thank her personally and on behalf of the business for her dedication and we wish her every success in her new venture." 

Laura Carr added:

"I have very much enjoyed my time with Dunelm. I am extremely proud of how the business has grown over recent years and it clearly has significant potential in the years ahead. I would like to thank my colleagues for the fantastic support they have given me, and I wish them all continued success."
