Superdry hires Shaun Wills as chief financial officer
Superdry has appointed Shaun Wills as its new chief financial officer. He previously worked in the same role with the business from 2012 to 2015.
Currently finance director for Marks & Spencer’s clothing and home business, Wills will take up his new position at the end of April. He will succeed Benedict Smith who will remain in post as interim chief financial officer over the coming months to ensure an orderly transition.
Wills has worked with Marks & Spencer since 2018 and has played a key role in developing and implementing the retailer’s transformation strategy. Prior to that, he was chief financial officer then chief executive of Style Group Brands.
Julian Dunkerton, chief executive of Superdry, said: “After a thorough process to identify a new CFO, led by our independent director Alastair Miller, Shaun emerged as the outstanding candidate for the role. Over the past three years, he has gained experience as a finance director at the very highest level in retail at M&S, and he knows our brand and business well. This will be invaluable as we emerge from the challenges of Covid and accelerate the reset of Superdry.”
Wills added: “I am delighted to be returning to Superdry, a world class brand which I am really passionate about. This is a great opportunity to work with the board, Julian and all the team to accelerate the reset of the business and restore Superdry to its rightful position as a leading global brand.”
