Kingfisher has welcomed John Colley back into the fold after seven years, appointing him as its group trading director.

A Kingfisher spokesperson commented: "John and his team will work with our Offer & Supply Chain organisation to support the local trading teams in creating their trading plans in each of our countries, while helping the business deliver one consistent proposition across our markets.”

Mr Colley will report directly to Kingfisher CEO, Véronique Laury.
