Hughes appoints new director of retail

17 years after joining the company as a Christmas temp, Jack Phelps has been appointed the new Director of Retail by Hughes Electrical.

Since starting in Colchester he has held many positions including store manager in Haverhill, Cambridge, and Lowestoft while he was also responsible for the integration of the Rayleigh branch into the company after its acquisition. Before this latest appointment Mr Phelps was an area manager.

In his new role he will be responsible for the retail division which has stores across seven counties in England.

“I am thrilled with my appointment and could have never dreamed when I started as a temp that I would end up as a company director!

“It has been a very challenging two years for the company as we have had to respond to the pandemic which has changed the ways customers choose to buy goods from us.

“As a company we have four strong legs to our business; internet, trade, rental and retail and we will continue to invest in all of them.

“My challenge now is to make sure Hughes continues to lead the market in offering our customers the best experience when they visit one of our stores.”
