HMV games team left bare by redundancies

HMV video games team is now just a ‘skeleton crew’ following the fresh round of redundancies at the company’s HQ.

Andy Pinder (games category manager), Nick Ashley, Will Cox and Ed Lee have all left the firm, leaving just two buyers.

Mike Fethers and Ewan Pinder left the games team last week, along with social media whizz Laura Yates.

The team has departed alongside CEO Trevor Moore and marketing boss Mark Hodgkinson.

Deloitte’s Nick Edwards said:Following our announcement of the closure of 66 stores yesterday, it has been necessary to consider the head office support required for the reduced store portfolio. As a result of this review, a number of redundancies at the head office have been made.

"This has been a difficult decision, but a necessary one in restructuring the business. We would like to express our gratitude to staff for their continued support during the administration.”

Our thoughts go out to the team and staff at HMV’s head office and its stores throughout the country.
