Budget apparel retailer Best & Less Group (BLG) CEO Rodney Orrock will be taking a three-month sabbatical from the company, for medical reasons.

Former MD and current non-executive chair Jason Murray will take over Orrock’s responsibilities effective immediately.

“Our business is in strong shape and the company remains focused on trading through the important Black Friday and Christmas trading periods and executing our growth strategy,” said Murray.

“We are supportive of Rod’s decision to take a period of medical leave and we wish him all the best with his treatment and recovery.”

Murray served as the group’s MD between 2012 and 2018 and again from 2019 to 2021. Prior to BLG, he was CEO and MD at Just Group.
