AHF, the multi-channel household furniture and flooring retailer, has appointed Julia Reynolds as a non executive Director to support Matt Hesketh CEO and Chris Stafford CFO as a result of the retirement of its current non executive chairman Mike Norris, who was appointed in 2012. Current non executive director John Chilcott will succeed him in the role of non executive chairman. 

With over 30 years experience in retail having worked at Arcadia and Tesco and CEO roles at Antler luggage and Figleaves, Julia brings a wealth of experience in omni channel retailing, branding and digital marketing. 

Matt Hesketh CEO says: “Mike Norris’s contribution over the past 5 years has been invaluable to AHF in a long and successful business career and we wish him the very best in his retirement. We are delighted at the prospects that working with Julia Reynolds will bring to the board. She has joined at a pivotal time in the development and growth of AHF with significant and exciting plans ahead for the business.” 

AHF is one of the largest employee co-operative in the UK, established over 38 years ago.
