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.

He was previously commercial director at Screwfix and then B&Q. Since then he has been the COO of Maxeda DIY Group based in the Netherlands, managing director for Majestic Wine, and spent two months at Hobbycraft as CEO.
