Changes at the top at B&Q
He will report to Kingfisher UK and Ireland ceo Euan Sutherland, who previously held the B&Q ceo role but has now taken on additional commercial responsibilities across the Kingfisher network, leading him to reorganise his senior team.

Mr Sutherland said: "I am delighted that we are able to promote Martyn to this key role in my B&Q leadership team. Martyn's 17-year career with Kingfisher including his most recent appointment on the B&Q board as operations director and before that HR director means that he is well placed to take on this newly created role in our leadership structure. I am very much looking forward to this next phase in our strategy and development of the leadership team."

Mr Sutherland will remain close to the B&Q business as ceo of Kingfisher UK and chairman of the B&Q board.

I waited in two days from 8am to 6pm for a promised delivery from B and Q. No delivery and no communication from B and Q. After expensive phone calls two deliveries of the wrong product. It seems the bar code is wrong on the web site again no response and no answer to e-mail sent to customer services. The company is in trouble if it cannot provide a 21st century service.
