Top job

Liam
Donnelly has been appointed HR director of HMV Europe – his first board HR
appointment. Donnelly had 10 years’ experience in a variety of HR roles in
retail and has worked for Kingfisher, owner of high street retail chains
Woolworths, B&Q, and Superdrug.

His big
break came when he worked for Entertainment UK, which supplies CDs to
Kingfisher retail outlets. This led him to work for Music and Video Club, after
which he defected to its major competitor, HMV.

While he
was senior HR controller at HMV, he pioneered a staff survey, called Your
Shout, which gave employees a say in HR policy.

He is
looking to oversee the training of store managers across Europe. “My goal is to
ensure HMV has the very best specialist retail managers in its stores who
really know their areas. Those are the people who really make the difference
and the ones who are the hardest to keep hold of.”
