Best Buy Europe ceo steps down
Best Buy Europe chief operating officer Andrew Harrison took over the role on February 1.

Mr Wheway's departure follows that of online managing director deVere Forster, who left last month, and ceo for branded operations Paul Antoniadis who left the company in July, less than three months after the opening of its first UK store.

Best Buy ceo Brian Dunn said: "This move has been planned for some time and is part of our overall strategy of integrating the Best Buy and Carphone Warehouse teams to create Europe's leading consumer electronics retailer. I am confident in Andrew's ability to lead the joint venture's growth plans in Europe, which remain unchanged."

Mr Harrison was previously ceo at Carphone Warehouse, which forms part of Best Buy Europe, along with Best Buy UK and Best Buy's mobile phone retailing operations in the US.

Mr Wheway will serve as a strategic advisor to Mr Dunn, who said: "I am pleased that Scott will continue to work with us on shaping our international strategy."
