New CEO appointed at pet retailer chain

Pets at Home has appointed Ian Kellett as its new chief executive following the resignation of Nick Wood, who is taking a break from business to spend time with his family.

Kellett has been with the company for over 10 years, primarily as the firm's chief financial officer, in which he played a large role in the firm's stock marlket launch, as well as serving as chief executive of its retail division.

He will become the group's new chief exec on 4 April, following the resignation of Wood, who will remain with the company in an advisory role until 1 July.

Graeme Jenkins, from the department store retailer Target Australia, will replace Kellett as the group's CFO.

A number of other changes at the retailer have also been announced, including the appointment of Peter Pritchard as CEO of its retail division.

Commenting on Kellett's appointment, Pets at Home chairman Tony DeNunzio, said: "I am delighted that Ian is succeeding Nick as CEO, having seen them work together so successfully over the past four years on the strategic development of the group.

"His appointment is consistent with the succession plan the board set out when Ian was appointed last year as CEO of the retail division, and with the appointment of Graeme Jenkins as CFO.

"Ian has a strong vision for the group based on his experience over ten years with Pets at Home in both financial and operational roles and I am confident he will continue to provide excellent leadership to the group."

Nick Wood (pictured below) said: "It has been a privilege to lead Pets at Home for four years, but after over eight years working in the North West, and with my children growing up fast, I feel the time is right for me to be based in London with my family."
