Former Monsoon boss Browett tipped to become Halfords' new chief executive

The ex-Monsoon Accessorize boss John Browett could become the next chief executive at bikes and car accessories retailer Halfords, reports Retail Week.

Browett, who left Monsoon on Thursday, is understood to have been approached for a number of roles.

The job at Halfords was left vacant after Matt Davies departed to take over at Tesco UK.

Browett previously ran Tesco’s online delivery business before becoming chief executive at Currys and PC World owner Dixons.

He then spent an ill-fated six-months at Apple ahead of moving to Monsoon. His shock exit from Monsoon emerged at the end of last week.

But the Daily Mail says that Browett could be in line for a quick return to retail, and Halfords was said to be considering the cycling enthusiast as Davies’ successor.

As previously reported by Retail Week, Browett is understood to have ruled himself out of the running for the chief executive role at supermarket giant Morrisons.
