Phones 4u's Dan Brizell joins Dixons Carphone
Dixons Carphone is continuing to headhunt former Phones 4u executives with the appointment of Dan Brizell as global purchasing chief.
Brizell brings long experience to Dixons Carphone, having joined the The Caudwell Group's operations division in 2000, where his roles included operations specialist, Dextra Solutions stock manager and senior merchandising manager.
In 2009 he joined Phones 4u’s purchasing team as purchasing manager, rising through the ranks to become associate director of purchasing in January this year.
Brizell’s appointment closely follows the appointment of Scott Hooton, former Phones 4u CMO and Nick Fisher, former COO of Phones 4u. Both are working as consultants on the transformation of Phones 4u’s 159 concessions at the group’s Currys/PC World megastores.
