The Carphone Warehouse Group PLC has appointed Peregrine Riviere as Investor Relations Director, a new role reporting into Chief Financial Officer, Roger Taylor.
Peregrine will be responsible for institutional and retail investor relations as well as management of key reporting periods and industry analysis for the Group.
After graduating from Oxford University in 1993, Peregrine joined Coopers & Lybrand, where he qualified as a chartered accountant. He subsequently joined Close Brothers Corporate Finance in 1997, where he worked on a wide range of corporate finance transactions for mid cap companies. In 1999 he moved to Morgan Stanley as an analyst in its Equity Research department, latterly covering General Retail stocks, including The Carphone Warehouse.
Comments, Roger Taylor, Chief Financial Officer:
“We’re delighted to welcome Peregrine on board. His corporate banking and analyst background, together with his retail stock experience at Morgan Stanley will make him an invaluable part of the team.”
Comments, Peregrine Riviere, IR Director:
“The Carphone Warehouse has an exciting time ahead particularly with the on-going launch of new technologies and moves into alternative revenue streams. The company’s telecoms services division, currently managing of over one million customers on behalf of European network operators, makes it more much than a retailer and I’m looking forward to supporting its growth and continuous development.”
