- Dunelm Group said Friday that Laura Carr would be appointed as Chief Financial Officer.

Carr would join the homewares group during autumn, with an exact start date to be determined later, the company said.

She was group Financial Controller of contract food and support services company Compass Group, a position which she had held since February 2017.

Prior to this Carr was CFO of Indigo Books & Music, Canada's largest book, gift and speciality toy retailer, from 2014 to 2017.

Carr succeeded Keith Down, who is expected to step down earlier than expected, on 24 May 2018, as David Stead, Dunelm's former CFO, joined the group as interim CFO to help smooth the transition, the firm said.
