Joules appoints Jonathon Brown as CEO

(Sharecast News) - Joules said on Monday that it has appointed Jonathon Brown as its new chief executive officer.
Brown succeeds Nick Jones, whose departure was announced in May. He will initially join the group as CEO designate on 7 September and will become CEO on 30 September following a short handover period from Jones.

Joules said Brown is "a proven leader with a strong track record of improving performance and implementing strategic transformation programmes across several digital and retail businesses".

He started his career in various marketing and digital roles, including at Schroders, British Airways and Coca-Cola. He has held senior positions at Aviva, where he was head of e-Channels, Kingfisher, where he was director of multichannel, and John Lewis, where he was omnichannel director. He was previously CEO of MandM Direct, where he executed a successful turnaround plan, and COO of Photobox Group.

Most recently, Brown was CEO of Compare the Market, part of BGL Group, where he led the business through a successful period of strategic transformation and growth.

Non-executive chairman Ian Filby said: "The board was in unanimous agreement that, amongst some very high calibre candidates, Jonathan was the standout choice to be our new CEO.

"He has significant experience across the retail and digital industries, a proven track-record of delivering business transformation, and the vision and ambition to lead Joules through the next stages of its development. The board has every confidence in him, and we look forward to working closely together over the coming years."
