Renewal and transformation
We're hearing rumours that at some high-ranking execs at DSGi business - the B2B arm of DSGi, which also owns the PC World and Currys retail chains - face the possibility of at the very least having their roles reassessed in the wake of the electronics retail group's £30 million half-yearly loss.
DSGi Business is subdivided into Equanet, Mac Warehouse and PC World Business. It's understood that all business units are affected.
HEXUS.channel contacted DSGi for comment today and received this official statement:
"We continue to transform the business to further improve our ability to trade profitably and efficiently for our customers. To maintain our competitive position in a tough environment, we have entered into consultation with a number of individuals in DSGi Business. We are actively working with those affected to redeploy them into the organisation where possible."
So it looks like there's some serious streamlining going on at DSGi Business even though it resides within the Computing division, which seemed to out perform the Electricals division in the interim report. With that in mind it would certainly seem premature to rule out similar moves in other parts of the company.
