Richard Hodges is leaving Dobbies

Dobbies Commercial Director, Richard Hodges, has announced via his Linked-in page that he is leaving the company, after just over two years in the post.


He says: "After two years at Dobbies, I am preparing to leave the business to explore new career opportunities.


"As Commercial Director, I’ve worked closely with our supply base to better serve the 30 million people who walk through the doors at Dobbies each year.


"What I am most grateful for is the opportunity to partner with so many talented, smart and kind people throughout my journey at Dobbies; Dobbies’ employees are the heart and soul of its 165-year heritage and I am proud of the contribution I have made to the culture and my team’s performance.


"As I prepare for the next chapter of my career I will take with me the invaluable experience I have had with the company. In the meantime I am looking forward to enjoying some adventures with my partner, Eve Bugler, and our two young boys. I wish everyone at Dobbies all the best for Spring and beyond."


GTN Xtra has asked Dobbies for a comment on the news and we will update this story as soon as we hear from them.
