Episode 8: Richard Murray
Joining us for some Retail Therapy this week in the Amex Lounge is Richard Murray, the chief executive of JB Hi-Fi – one of the biggest retail businesses in Australia – and one that has done incredibly well throughout the pandemic as people stocked up on products for their homes – new TVs, entertainment systems and the like.
Richard has been the CEO of JB Hi-Fi since 2014 and in April this year it was announced that he would be leaving to join Premier Investments – which includes the brands of Just Jeans, Portmans and Peter Alexander.
