Having carried out the role on an interim basis since January, Trevor Masters was identified as the “outstanding candidate” for the role following an extensive search process commissioned by the Pepco Group board.

Prior to taking up the interim chief executive position, Mr. Masters had led the Pepco brand since joining the group in November 2019.

With 40 years’ experience within the retail sector, both within the UK and internationally, Mr. Masters previously served as chief executive of Tesco International and in various operational roles within the UK for the supermarket.

Pepco Group said that Nick Wharton has informed the board of his intention to step down as chief financial officer at the end of April due to a continuation of health issues.

Mr. Wharton joined the group in 2018 and played a key role in its flotation on the Warsaw Stock Exchange in May 2021.

Mr. Wharton will remain an advisor to the board until the end of the financial year.
