LONDON (Brand Republic) – Former Asda chief executive, Allan Leighton has joined the board of directors of British vacuum manufacturer Dyson as a non-executive.

The move follows on the heels of Leighton’s appointment as a non-executive director at internet retailer Lastminute.com. Leighton becomes the privately listed company’s second non-executive director at a time when it is due to launch its latest model.

Dyson said Leighton would be useful for its planned expansion into the US -– he steered through Asda’s 1999 buy-out to US retailer Wal-Mart.

“I am pleased to be involved with such exciting technology and so many new ideas for the future,” he said.
