Retail operations and store directors appointed
Comet has strengthened its board with the appointment of two directors.

Mike Rooney, former head of operations for the North, has been promoted to retail operations director. He has worked at the retailer for more than 24 years in various roles, from shopfloor to operations and store development positions.

Toby Lousada, former head of operations for the South, has become services director, and is now responsible for after-sales service and home delivery. Lousada has worked at Comet for 19 years.

Managing director Hugh Harvey said: 'Both Mike and Toby have deep knowledge of our business and a clear vision of how to take it forward. They were both extremely successful in their previous roles, demonstrating a highly valued commitment to our success. These promotions are well earned.'
