Superdry makes two new board appointments
Superdry has appointed Georgina Harvey and Faisal Galaria to its board.
Harvey is currently a senior independent director and chair of the remuneration committee at the McColls convenience retailer. She also sits on the boards of William Hill and Big Yellow. Prior to developing her career as a non-executive director, Harvey spent seven years as managing director of regionals at Trinity Mirror. At Superdry, she will also chair the remuneration committee.
Meanwhile, Galaria has recently stepped down as the chief strategy and investment officer of Gocompare where he helped lead the company’s listing on the London Stock Exchange. Previous roles have also included stints at Spotify, Kayak.com and Skype. Prior to joining Gocompare, Galaria built the European digital and media practices at advisory firm Alvarez & Marsal.
Peter Williams, chairman of Superdry, said: “I am delighted to announce the appointment of these two outstanding individuals, who will prove strong additions to the Superdry board. Georgina is a highly experienced non-executive director and remuneration committee chairman, while Faisal brings world-class digital expertise to the board, skills which I believe will be of huge benefit to the business.
‘Along with the appointments of Helen Weir and Alastair Miller announced earlier this month, we now have the right board to support the business as we set out to reinvigorate the Superdry brand and improve the financial performance of the company.”
