Ex-J Sainsbury CFO joins Carpetright
Former Sainsbury, Carpetright and Superdrug Stores FD Darren Shapland takes non-executive role at Carpetright
FORMER J SAINSBURY chief financial officer Darren Shapland has been recruited as non-executive director at Carpetright.
Shapland (pictured) was previously J Sainsbury CFO for five years until 2010 when he took on a group director role.
Currently Shapland is chairman of the J Sainsbury bank and non-executive director at bookies Ladbrokes, both of which he will continue.
Lord Harris of Peckham, chairman and CEO of Carpetright, said: “I am delighted that Darren has agreed to join Carpetright’s board as a non-executive director. He was an outstanding finance director when he was with us before and his subsequent success at Sainsbury’s speaks for itself.”
