Farewell HMV

Simon Fox, former chief executive of HMV speaking to the Telegraph last year:

I am proud to be leaving HMV with a profitable future secured. The appointment of Trevor Moore means that I will be leaving the company in safe hands.

He has the right skills and experience to lead HMV in the coming years.

Trevor Moore used to be the chief executive of Jessops (which went into administration last week), and a senior executive at Threshers and Coffee Republic (both of which went into administration in 2009).

Today it was announced the UK highstreet retailer HMV was going into administration.

If I worked for a company that was considering bringing Moore onto their board of execs I’d be pretty scared.
