Superdry appoints two new board members
Superdry has appointed Helen Weir and Alastair Miller to its board as it continues its search for additional non-executive directors.
Due to join the business on 11 July, Weir will become senior independent director while Miller will be chair of the audit committee.
Weir was chief financial officer of Marks & Spencer from 2015 to 2018. Prior to that, she held the same position at John Lewis Partnership. She currently sits on the boards of Just Eat and the RFU. She is also a trustee for the Marie Curie charity.
Miller served as chief financial officer of New Look Group from 2000 to 2014. Since then he has worked as a retail consultant as well as serving as senior independent director on the board of New River.
Peter Williams, Superdry chairman, said: “I am delighted to welcome Helen and Alastair to the board of Superdry. Since becoming chairman in April it has been a priority of mine to restore the board to full strength and these appointments are a big step in that direction.
Both Helen and Alastair have extensive relevant experience in the retail sector and have served as CFOs of major listed companies. As such I am sure they will both prove excellent additions to the board as Superdry embarks on its turnaround.
“We continue to search for an additional two non-executive directors and will make further announcements in due course.”
