Steve Scogings takes over CIH chair from Robin Millwood
Combined Independents (Holdings) has announced that Steve Scogings is to take over as chairman from Robin Millwood, who has chaired the Group for 12 years. Steve has been deputy chairman for the last two years and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience of the independent electrical retail channel, having spent 28 years with the electrical retail chain, Stellisons Electrical.
Steve says he continually innovates to ensure that Stellisons is at the forefront of the retail industry; for example, Stellisons was the first UK retailer to introduce electronic shelf labelling technology to streamline the pricing process, and to relieve staff to focus on the company's core value, customer service.
"I am thrilled to be elected as chairman of CIH at such an exciting time for the business," he enthuses. "I am passionate about the industry and look forward to this next chapter of my time with CIH and the Euronics members."
Stuart Cook, chief executive officer, CIH, says: "Robin has been an excellent chairman, providing effective leadership, encouraging healthy debate and directing the board to conclusions for the good of CIH and the industry. Robin has done an excellent job and we thank him for his sterling work and dedication.
"We welcome Steve Scogings as the new chairman. Steve has played an integral role as a CIH director for a number of years. With significant changes to come at CIH, we are delighted to have Steve on board as our new chairman."
