Superdry has announced the appointments of Helen Weir and Alastair Miller to its Board. The appointments will take effect from July 11, 2019. Helen Weir will be the senior independent director and Alastair Miller will become chair of the audit committee. The Superdry brand designs affordable, premium quality clothing, accessories, and footwear.

Helen Weir was most recently chief financial officer (CFO) of Marks & Spencer, a role she held from 2015 to 2018. She currently sits on the boards of Just Eat and the RFU and is a trustee for the Marie Curie charity. Helen previously served on the boards of SAB Miller, Royal Mail, and GEMS Education in the UAE, according to Superdry.

Alastair Miller served as CFO of New Look Group from 2000 to 2014. Since then he has worked as a retail consultant as well as served as senior independent director on the board of NewRiver.

“I am delighted to welcome Helen and Alastair to the Board of Superdry. Since becoming chairman in April, it has been a priority of mine to restore the Board to full strength and these appointments are a big step in that direction. Both Helen and Alastair have extensive relevant experience in the retail sector and have served as CFOs of major listed companies. As such, I am sure they will both prove excellent additions to the Board as Superdry embarks on its turnaround. We continue to search for an additional two non-executive directors and will make further announcements in due course,” Peter Williams, chairman at Superdry said. (GK)
