Second Carphone Warehouse buyer hops to Australia
Carphone Warehouse head of cellular purchasing Duncan Phillips has left the retailer for a post in Australia.
He will be working for his former colleague and Carphone COO, John Durkan.
Phillips is the second person in the trading team to leave in recent months, after trading chief George Dymond also left to join Durkan at Coles supermarket in Australia before Christmas.
Durkan left Carphone in April 2008, after his and retail managing director Anthony Catterson’s roles were removed from the business.
Carphone said it is now ‘looking to recruit for a few posts in the trading area’, and has not yet filled Phillips’ role.
