ScS has named former Holland & Barrett boss Steve Carson as its new chief executive to succeed the retiring David Knight.

The furniture specialist said Carson will join the business in January 2021 and Knight will stay on for a handover period before departing in July. 

Carson left Holland & Barrett in January, just nine months after being promoted to the role of group managing director. Prior to that, he spent a year as the health and wellness retailer’s managing director in the UK.
