Ian Topping, who previously served as Harveys’ managing director, has been stepping down to focus on his role as chief executive of the company’s parent, Steinhoff UK. Former Dixons directors Stephen Campbell and Mark Clarke held a variety of roles, including managing director of PC City International and PC World. Mr. Campbell left Dixons last year to pursue a consultancy role. The new Harveys managing director will focus on operational excellence, marketing and market share.

Blue Group, Harveys’ parent company, has hired PricewaterhouseCoopers as administrators. The company will cease taking new orders, but it has promised to honour existing orders. If the administration process fails, as expected, 20 stores will close. Blue Group also owns Bensons for Beds, which will close about half of its retail outlets. In total, 150 to 175 outlets will remain open. This will result in 240 job losses.
