The Week: People News - DSG's Clare steps down

John Clare, the chief executive of DSG International and the president of ISBA, is to retire after 13 years at the head of the company. Clare, who launched Freeserve, the first free internet provider, and was behind Dixons' move from the high street to online, will step down in September. He refused to comment on a successor, but analysts have tipped the finance director, Kevin O'Bryne, as the most likely candidate.
