Best Buy UK loses more directors

Best Buy UK, the joint venture between the US electricals giant and Carphone Warehouse, has lost another two directors just days after its chief executive Scott Wheway stepped down.

Kevin Styles, who joined the venture from Kingfisher to be marketing director almost two years ago, is leaving to explore new opportunities.

Meanwhile, the company's commercial director, Harry Parmar, is returning to Canada, for family reasons, after spending 18 months in the UK. He will take up a senior role at Best Buy Canada.

Andrew Harrison, a Carphone Warehouse veteran, took over as CEO of Best Buy UK last week.
