Mark Eastham has been promoted from commercial director to the UK trading director, replacing the responsibilities of Graham Stapleton, who remains chief commercial officer. Stapleton will now focus on a wider enterprise role including all commercial activities across Carphone Warehouse, The Phone House and synergies with Best Buy.
