Supergroup non-executive directors to leave business
Superdry owner Supergroup has said that non-executive directors Steve Sunnucks and Beatrice Lafon will not be standing for re-election at its AGM in September.
In a statement, the company said the duo had both taken on new roles and interests outside Supergroup since joining the board which they felt could impact their ongoing availability to fully support the business.
Peter Bamford, chairman of Supergroup, said: “I would like to thank Beatrice and Steve for their contributions to Supergroup and wish them well for the future. Given the current public policy debates around potential reform of corporate governance and the evolving needs of Supergroup, we will review the requirements of the Board in detail before making new appointments.”
Separately, Penny Hughes, a non-executive director at Supergroup, has been appointed chairman of the board’s remuneration committee. She has succeeded Keith Edelman who will remain senior independent director and a member of the remuneration committee and has also been appointed to the audit committee.
