Squire’s Garden Centres has appointed two new non-executive Directors, Rob Collins and Tony Perkins. Rob Collins has held various roles within the John Lewis partnership and recently retired as MD of Waitrose. Tony Perkins was Audit Lead Partner at BDO, a top five international accounting firm, where he worked with Squire’s for many years.
Sarah Squire, Squire’s Chairman, commented; “I am delighted to welcome Rob and Tony to the team at Squire’s. Non-executive Directors have been a great asset to us over the years. We have benefitted enormously from their counsel. Knowing our business well, but not being involved in day-to-day matters, they see issues objectively. They bring a completely different and complementary set of skills to our decision making, often asking pertinent questions of us based on their own commercial experience. We very much look forward to benefiting from Rob and Tony’s business acumen and experience.”
