Following its takeover by private equity owners Midlothian Capital Partners and Hattington Capital, Dobbies has a new chief executive officer - John Clelend.
Mr Clelend will replace Andy King, who is reportedly staying on at Dobbies in an advisory role. The new CEO has previous experience at ASDA, Maplin, B&Q and Somerfield.
He said: "Dobbies is one of the great heritage brands in British retail. We hope to build on that and create a stronger, market leading company. I am very much looking forward to working with new colleagues to grow the business together in the future."
