The charity is dedicated to looking after the 3m people working in retail, plus those retired from the sector and its associated businesses.

Mr Duddy left the Homebase, Argos and Habitat parent earlier this year, having been there for 15 years and ceo since 2006. He was chief executive at Argos in 1998, and prior to that held the role of managing director of PC World and Dixons.

With Mr Duddy at the helm HRG expanded following the purchase of 27 ex-Focus DIY stores in 2007 and the acquisition of Habitat in 2011.

Commenting on the role that he will take up on Monday, September 8, Mr Duddy said: "I am delighted to be appointed chair of Retail Trust at a time when demand for our services is greater than ever.

"It's been an outstanding year for the charity and I relish the opportunity to build on the sterling work done by my predecessor, John Lovering. I look forward to working with him in his new capacity as head of the Retail Trust Ambassador Group."
