Boohoo announces board changes
Online fashion retailer Boohoo has appointed Alistair McGeorge as a non-executive director.
He has succeeded Brian Small as the group’s deputy chairman and will act as interim chair of the audit committee until the search for an additional non-executive director is complete.
Currently chairman of The Original Factory Shop and East Imperial, McGeorge has worked in the retail sector for over 30 years. His career has included a stint as chief executive of Matalan and he has also previously served as chairman of fashion retailer New Look.
Mahmud Kamani, Boohoo group executive chairman, said: “Alistair has extensive board-level experience with some great retail brands. We look forward to working with him and are confident that he will help us deliver our ambition to be the global fashion leader.”
Boohoo has also announced that Neil Catto has stepped down as an executive director after nearly 12 years, the majority of which was spent as chief financial officer.
Kamani added: “Neil has been with the group for 12 years and is held in the highest regard for his substantial contribution. He has been instrumental in building the group from a one-brand-business and into a multi-brand platform. I, on behalf of the wider board, management team and group, wish Neil and Brian the very best for the future.””
