JB Hi-Fi Group rounded out its executive team on Tuesday, with Cameron Trainor reprising his role as managing director of the JB Hi-Fi business.
Trainor has spent the past 12 months leading the group’s merchandising function. Under Trainor’s leadership, the merchandising arm of the business implemented a revised private label strategy, as well as trade reporting, tracking, and benchmarking protocols.
“Group merchandise remains a key focus for the group and the group merchandise team will work closely with the merchandise directors in each of the JB Hi-Fi and The Good Guys business,” the company said in an announcement to investors.
HR director for The Good Guys Lynda Blakely will take up the same role group-wide – now looking after the HR business across both JB Hi-Fi and The Good Guys. Blakely joined The Good Guys in 2016, and supported the business through a period of significant change as JB Hi-Fi acquired it.
Additionally, JB Hi-Fi technology director Simon Page has been appointed to lead both companies as group technology director, having overseen “significant improvements” in the JB Hi-Fi business since having started in September 2015.
“These appointments are a testament to the talent in both business,” JB Hi-Fi group chief executive Richard Murray said.
“Following the move to our new shared support office, we remain committed to two separate and strong brands supported by integrated group functions.”
