Best Buy’s entertainment boss Marc Spence will leave the electronics retailer on Friday, August 27th.
Spence oversaw the launch of Best Buy in Europe and developed the firm’s entertainment departments – which included large video game demonstration areas and a pre-owned range.
During his UK retail career, Spence has worked at the Home Retail Group, HMV and GAME. Best Buy UK says it will announce a new head of entertainment in the coming weeks.
“We can confirm that Marc Spence is leaving Best Buy UK at the end of August to take up a role in the Middle East,” said a Best Buy spokesperson.
“We are grateful for his efforts in developing our compelling entertainment offering and his contribution to the success of Best Buy’s launch in the UK.
“We are sorry to see Marc go and wish him every success in the future.”
Spence will be replaced by Best Buy’s head of games James Cooke on the MCV Retail Advisory Board.
