ScS chief executive to step down | Retail Bulletin

May 29, 2024 | by


ScS chief executive Steve Carson is to step down this summer after nearly four years in the role.

Carson oversaw the retailer being taken private after it accepted a takeover deal by Italian furniture retailer Poltronesofà last autumn. The deal valued the Sunderland-based firm at £99.4 million.

A spokesperson from ScS told City AM: “Steve has decided that now is the right time to move on from ScS.

“He will depart knowing the group’s future is bright, having played a central role in bringing about considerable investment via a new ownership structure and enabling transformative progression with a rebranding exercise.

“He leaves with a strong legacy and the thanks of the entire business and new ownership for his effort and drive in pursuit of a clear purpose to support customers in helping create a ‘home they love’.”

Carson will leave the business in July to ensure a smooth transition.
