Unbound Group appoints Alastair Miller as a non-executive director
Hotter Shoes owner Unbound Group has appointed former New Look chief financial officer Alastair Miller as a non-executive director.
With significant experience within the retail sector, Miller is currently a non-executive director at Superdry. He was chief financial officer at New Look from 2000 to 2014 and prior to that worked with RAC where he was group finance director.
At Unbound, Miller will also be appointed as chair of the company’s audit and risk committee and become a member of the remuneration and nominations committees at the end of the year.
Neil Johnson, chair of the board, said: “I am delighted to welcome Alastair Miller to the board. His recent and relevant expertise and proven abilities will further strengthen governance and will add significant strategic value to the board and the group.
Following Gavin Manson’s move to an executive role as chief financial officer at Unbound, the number of independent non-executive directors will reduce from three to two on 31 December. As such, current independent non-executive directors, Paul Goodson and Suki Thompson will be stepping down from the board on that date.
Unbound said the changes reflect a more appropriate balance in light of the future needs of the business.
Johnson added: “Paul has made a major contribution to the Board’s effectiveness over the past 6 years both at Electra Private Equity Plc and at Unbound Group. More recently, Suki has been a visionary support as the Unbound Group business model was created. We wish them all best wishes in the future.”
