Jan '13
N Brown Group plc, the online, catalogue and stores retailer, is delighted to announce the appointment of Angela Spindler as Chief Executive Officer.  Angela has been CEO of The Original Factory Shop since 2009, where she has led the team responsible for substantial growth in the business. Prior to this, Angela had roles at Coca Cola, Pedigree Masterfoods, Asda and Debenhams.

She will join the business before 1 July and will succeed Alan White, who after 25 years with the company, the last ten years as CEO, announced in July 2012 his plans to retire and build a portfolio of non-executive roles.

Andrew Higginson, Chairman of N Brown said "We are delighted that Angela has decided to join N Brown and lead it through the next phase of its exciting growth. She brings a tremendous breadth of experience to the role, most recently as a successful CEO, and the Board firmly believes she has the personal qualities to lead the team, and the business, as it continues its growth online and internationally.  I would like to say a particular thank you to Alan White, who has helped me to settle in, and who will stay on to ensure a proper handover to Angela."

Angela Spindler commented "N Brown is a fabulous business which has been very successfully adapted to benefit from the multi-channel retail revolution.  I am really looking forward to working with a great team and to building on the momentum they have established.  The business has some excellent brands and is well placed to deliver growth both in the UK and Internationally. I am delighted to be joining."

Angela started her career in marketing and sales with Coca Cola UK, before spending ten years in a variety of marketing and sales roles at Pedigree Masterfoods.  She then spent ten years at Asda, in marketing, trading and retail development roles.  Her final position was Managing Director Global George, a fashion business with sales of over $3.5bn across 11 International markets. This was followed by a year as Managing Director of Debenhams, before joining the private equity owned Original Factory Shop in January 2009.

Angela is married with two children and will be relocating to her native Cheshire.
