Dunelm appoints new Customer Director; Board resignation

Home furnishings retailer Dunelm Group plc has announced that Kelly Devine will be stepping down from her role as a Non-Executive Director of the Company on 5 July 2024.

This follows her acceptance of a full-time position with the Company as Customer Director. Kelly will join Dunelm’s Executive Team, reporting directly to Nick Wilkinson, CEO.

Since 2020 Kelly has been President, UK & Ireland, for Mastercard. In this role she has led substantial growth across the network, with a particular focus on evolving and broadening the customer offer, expanding customer relationships and building the brand.

Kelly will be considered non-independent with immediate effect and has stepped down as a member of the Company’s audit and risk, nominations and remuneration committees.

Alison Brittain, Dunelm Chair, said: “I am delighted that Kelly has agreed to join the Dunelm Executive Team as our Customer Director. I would like to thank Kelly for her valuable contribution as a Non-Executive over the past two years.

“Whilst she will be greatly missed around the Board table, it’s fantastic to welcome her into her new role, where she will focus on pushing forward our customer proposition and working with the rest of our Executive Team to pursue the multiple opportunities we have to grow the business and develop our brand.”

Kelly Devine said: “Having got to know Dunelm really well over recent years, I’ve seen first hand the quality of the team, the strength of the brand, and the exciting journey the business is on. I’m really looking forward to being even more involved in that journey and can’t wait to get started.”
