Lee will join the business from Edinburgh Woollen Mill Group where he has held the positon of group chief financial officer for the past five years.

Prior to that, he held senior finance roles at Brighthouse Retail, General Healthcare Group and Caudwell Group. He also spent 14 years at Allsports and the John David Group, which is now JD Sports.

Lee will succeed Darren Bryant who announced earlier this year that he is to retire from the role after eight years with the business. Lee’s appointment will take effect at a date to be agreed once his departure date from Edinburgh Woollen Mill has been finalised.
