UK: Mothercare makes Newton-Jones' CEO role permanent
Newton-Jones replaced Simon Calver on an interim basis on 17 March
Mother, baby and children's goods retailer Mothercare has appointed interim chief executive Mark Newton-Jones as its group CEO.
Newton-Jones replaced Simon Calver on an interim basis on 17 March while Mothercare searched for a permanent chief executive. Calver stepped down at the end of June after less than two years in the role.
"The board has conducted a thorough recruitment process over the past few months and is confident Mark is the right person to lead the business," the company said.
Previously CEO of Shop Direct, Newton-Jones left in July last year after a decade with the group. Prior to this, he held a number of senior roles with UK fashion giant Next.
Mothercare has recently been the subject of an attempted takeover by US firm Destination Maternity. Mothercare, however, rejected the two proposals for not reflecting the inherent value of the company.
