WomenÂ’s sportswear brand Lululemon Athletica has appointed Robert Bensoussan to its board of directors as the company focuses on international expansion.

Chip Wilson, founder and chairman of Lululemon, said: "We're unrolling our mat in some exciting new international markets over the next few years and Robert's extensive experience and perspective will prove valuable to Lululemon as we expand globally."

Since 2008, Bensoussan has been a director and the majority owner of Sirius Equity LLP, a UK company that invests in retail and brands in the UK and Europe. In the past four years, Sirius has invested in women’s fashion retailer LK Bennett, Italian sportswear retailer Jeckerson Spa as well as online beauty retailer feelunique.com.
