Christian Mazauric, currently CEO of CEO of Brico Dépôt in Romania, is to become CEO of B&Q UK and Ireland.

Change at the top of B&Q UK and Ireland: Christian Mazauric is to become CEO of the largest business within Kingfisher from 1 July. Most recently he was CEO of the Kingfisher business Brico Dépôt in Romania, where he was responsible for turning around the business, according to an explanation. The replacement was necessary because the previous CEO, Danish Michael Loeve, left B&Q after two years of service.

Christian Mazauric joined Kingfisher more than 16 years ago and has held a number of finance and operations roles in France, the UK and Romania, including Finance Director of Castorama France and Finance Director of B&Q.
