Walker steps out of Carphone
One of Carphone’s longest-serving directors, Richard Walker, left the business earlier this month.
Walker most-recently worked for Carphone’s TalkTalk division with CEO Charles Dunstone and TalkTalk MD, David Thatcher.
He was parachuted into the UK retail business two years ago from Carphone’s European operation amid rumblings of a mutiny among Carphone’s rank and file staff.
Staff felt tired and under-paid after TalkTalk launched. It was plagued with problems and staff were put in the firing line from disgruntled customers.
Walker joined Carphone in 1991 after a spell at a management consultancy firm.
