Entertainment retailer HMV has announced the immediate appointment of Sarah Hughes as its new head of online.

Hughes joins from rival online firm Amazon and will head a team of 15 within the chain's marketing department in a role that has been expanded to cater for HMV's growing online aspirations.

"I learned much during my time at Amazon and thoroughly enjoyed the experience of working with such a talented and dedicated group of people,” Hughes stated.

However, the exciting opportunity presented by HMV to help further develop its online presence was one I felt I simply couldn't miss. I'm really looking forward to getting started and working with such a wonderful brand and with the great team they have there.”

Prior to her stint as head of DVD buying at Amazon, Hughes worked for now-passed distributor Entertainment UK and retailer MVC.
