Mr Stapleton, who has previously held roles at both Carphone Warehouse, Kingfisher as well as M&S, will join the FTSE 250 retailer in January.

Halfords is a business with a 125 year heritage and a market leading brand that strongly resonates with me and the UK public and I am delighted to be joining the company.
