Holland & Barrett to name new chief executive

Holland and Barrett More York

Holland & Barrett is poised to appoint former Travis Perkins director Tony Buffin as its new chief executive, Retail Week understands.

The health and beauty retailer plans to name Buffin, who stepped down as Travis Perkins chief operating officer in February following a boardroom restructure, as its new boss tomorrow.

Buffin will succeed Peter Aldis, who had been at the helm of Holland & Barrett for 10 years before stepping down with immediate effect in March.

Group managing director Steve Carson’s role will be unchanged following Buffin’s appointment.
