JD Sports appoints new non-executive director

JD Sports has appointed Bert Hoyt as a non-executive director with immediate effect.

With significant experience in the global sportswear market, Hoyt is a former Nike executive and held the position of VP/GM of Nike EMEA until he retired in January 2021. JD said he has been credited with transforming Nike’s business in Western Europe and EMEA over the last nine years and also helped it to achieve substantial growth in revenues and profitability.

Prior to Nike, Hoyt worked with Puma for 10 years as GM for Puma International and earlier in his career was a Top 200 ATP Tennis professional.

Peter Cowgill, JD Sports executive chairman, said: “I am delighted to welcome Bert to the board of directors of JD. Bert has an extensive knowledge of the market in which JD operates and a deep understanding of key supplier relationships, market dynamics and international operations. I have every confidence that Bert will have an extremely positive impact on the future of JD and its ongoing growth and success.”

JD Sports has also announced that it is making good progress with regard to additional board appointments which it said will address the composition, skill sets and balance of the board.
