John joined Screwfix 11 years ago as marketing and ecommerce director, and was appointed as chief executive in 2018.

Prior to this, he worked for Dixons Carphone across various roles, including operations, commercial and marketing, for more than 20 years.

Passionate about helping others, John is a trustee of The Screwfix Foundation, a charity set up in 2013 to support those in need. In six years The Screwfix Foundation has raised more than £4m and donated to over a thousand charities across the UK.

“I am delighted to be part of the Be Inspired campaign, to support and champion women into leadership roles within retail.

“The unique thing about retail is that you can go from shop floor to chief executive, and I am really passionate about sharing my experience with my colleagues in order to help them achieve their goals.

“It’s so inspiring to see Screwfix colleagues work their way through the company, whether that’s through our store network, contact centre or central office. 

“I am a strong believer in having a diverse workforce and I look forward to supporting my colleagues in reaching their potential within retail.”
