Peter O’Connell and Simon Markey exit Phones 4u
Phones 4u will lose two senior head office roles in the coming weeks. Insurance chief Simon Markey will leave the business, together with a senior figure in the trading team, Peter O’Connell.
O’Connell is leaving to join former colleague Justin Young who also worked in the trading team and left in 2008 for Shop Direct, part of Littlewoods.
COO Phil Dobson is understood to have stepped in to run Phones 4u’s lucrative insurance business, following Markey’s departure.
Meanwhile, O’Connell is leaving after 11 years with the retailer, where he rose through the junior ranks.
