Ex-Woolworths buyer Rebecca Hughes joins Carphone Warehouse
Carphone Warehouse has appointed former Woolworths buyer Rebecca Hughes as senior postpay buyer.
She joined the retailer this week and has already begun speaking to suppliers.
Hughes (pictured) had been an instrumental figure in the growth of Woolworths’ mobile category, with innovative propositions aimed at the retailer’s target market, prior to its collapse at the end of 2008.
Carphone has been looking to boost its mobile buying team following the departure of Duncan Phillips to Australia. Commercial director Graham Stapleton had also previously stated his intention to create new buying roles within the retailer.
