Episode 8: Richard Murray

Show notes

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. 

 In this episode of Retail Therapy, Paul and Richard discuss: 

  • Richard’s move to Premier Investments from JB Hi-Fi 

  • His love and passion for retail  

  • Diversity and representation  

  • How small business is the engine room of the economy  

  • What you learn from your first job in retail  

  • A day in the life of Richard Murray  

  • Jumping at opportunities  

  • Being proud to be a retailer  

  • Designing digital retail spaces
