Jones’ father, former JJB chairman Sir David Jones, stepped down from his role as non-executive director on 28 July due to ill health. Stuart is understood to have followed just days later. Insiders suggested yesterday that Jones junior had been sacked, after a management shake-up at the firm in the wake of Sir David’s departure. However, a company spokesman insisted he had resigned. “I’m sure he will have a fruitful career in whatever he does next,” he added. Jones junior has worked for several family businesses including consultancy firm Retail Gateway, where he courted controversy in 2008 after being asked to write a six-month review of JJB’s online business. His father had been appointed as a non-executive director at the sports firm just months earlier, while his mother worked as company secretary for the consultancy. Keith Jones (no relation) was hired by JJB as chief executive in March, to try and stem heavy losses at the high street retailer. center_img KCS-content JJB loses links to the Jones family as Sir David’s son quits Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofThe Truth About Bottled Water – Get the Facts on Drinking Bottled WaterGayot whatsapplast_img read more
