Ted Baker names new chairman
Fashion retailer Ted Baker has appointed John Barton as its new chairman.
Due to join the company’s board in July, Barton has been chairman of EasyJet since 2013. He is also a former chairman of Next and Cable and Wireless and was previously a senior independent director of both WH Smith and SSP Group.
Until Barton formally joins the Ted Baker board, Sharon Baylay will continue in her role as acting chair.
Baylay said: “Following a thorough and competitive search process, the Board is delighted that John is joining us as chairman and we look forward to welcoming him to Ted Baker.
“His significant experience in a number of leading customer facing businesses, including very relevant experience from his time spent leading the board at Next plc, will be of great value as we continue the journey to transform the business.”
