Two months after waving goodbye to its longstanding chief executive Peter Aldis, Holland & Barrett has ushered in a new era with the appointment of Tony Buffin as his replacement.
Buffin joins the health and wellness retailer from Travis Perkins where he was chief operating officer, having previously served as chief finance director.
His appointment will see executive chair and former Home Retail Group boss John Walden revert to a non-executive role, while recently promoted Steve Carson will continue as group managing director.
Buffin has big shoes to fill at Holland & Barrett. Aldis presided over 39 consecutive quarters of like-for-like growth during a period when the retailer was beginning its long-term strategic transformation into a leading omnichannel brand.
