Former John Lewis COO Andrew Murphy hired as The Entertainer CEO

Andrew Murphy, The Entertainer

Former John Lewis Partnership (JLP) chief operating officer Andrew Murphy has joined The Entertainer as its chief executive.

Murphy announced his decision to leave JLP last November, taking to LinkedIn to explain that turning 50 and feeling the “tick-tock” of the milestone birthday had prompted him to move on after 30 years with the retailer.

He said he had spent more than 11,000 days as a John Lewis partner, rising up the ranks after starting as a sales assistant.
