Halfords nets Honeybee boss Graham Stapleton as new chief executive, Halfords said



Halfords is to replace its departing chief executive Jill McDonald with the boss of Dixons Carphone's software business.
 
 
Honeybee CEO Graham Stapleton will begin work in mid-January, Halfords said.
 
 
The cycle-to-auto parts retailer was told in May that Ms McDonald was leaving to lead a new recovery effort in the struggling fashion and homewares division of Marks and Spencer.


Halfords said she would go at the end of September with the company's chief financial officer, Jonny Mason, assuming the additional responsibility of acting chief executive until Mr Stapleton begins work next year.


The new Halfords boss has experience in areas of its business as his early career was dominated by the establishment of his own company that offered car detailing and refurbishment services.
