Best Buy UK team revealed

The planned UK invasion by Best Buy continues this week, as the firm finalises its games team.

Former GAME exec Marc Spence has joined the US electronics retailer as head of domain for entertainment, where he will cover all games systems and console software.

Spence joins from Home Retail Group, where he was head of strategic development. Previously, he held the role of GAME Group MD for Continental Europe for four years, and before that was group buying director for games at DSG International.

Best Buy Europe has also recruited Ren Wright as head of domain for IT products.

Wright signs up from DSGi, where she was employed as head of trading for entertainment. She was also a member of MCV’s Retail Advisory Board.

In her new role, Wright will take control of IT hardware, peripherals, PC games and non-games software.

Finally, former DSGi trading manager Tom Guy has been snapped up as group head of product and category development.

All three new recruits joined Best Buy Europe this month.
