The finance director of Dixons Carphone is set to become the new chief finance officer at Marks and Spencer.

No start date has yet been confirmed for Humphrey Singer. He will replace Helen Weir, who is leaving on 31 March to pursue a portfolio career.

Singer, who is also a non-executive director at Taylor Wimpey, joined Dixons in 2007 before becoming finance director in 2011, a position he continued to hold following the merger of the retail group with Carphone Warehouse in 2014.

He previously held finance roles at Cadbury Schweppes and Coca-Cola Enterprises UK.

“As we embark on our five-year transformation programme, Humphrey will be a great addition to the top team,” Steve Rowe, chief executive, M&S, said. “His experience as part of the team that led Dixons through its period of change and migration to multichannel retailer is most relevant to what we are undertaking here. This, coupled with his retail expertise and eye for detail and cost, will be very important to our team dynamic as we move forward.”
