HMV boss Trevor Moore ‘made redundant’

HMV chief executive Trevor Moore is believed to have been made redundant by the administrator.

Deloitte, which was appointed by HMV after the firm struggled against competition from online retailers, supermarkets and streaming sites, yesterday announced 60 job losses across the retailer’s head office network. It would not comment on whether Moore was one of those leaving the firm. He joined HMV in 2012 from camera specialist Jessops, which also went into administration this year.

The redundancies follow the closure of 66 loss-making HMV stores over the next two months, putting almost 1,000 jobs at risk. The group operates from 220 stores in the UK and employs around 4,000 people.
