Ted Baker has appointed Helena Feltham as an independent non-executive director, with effect from May 1, 2019. Ted Baker is a global lifestyle brand distributing across five continents through its three main distribution channels retail (including ecommerce), wholesale, and licensing. The retail company has around 560 stores and concessions worldwide.

Helena has over 30 years’ experience in retail and human resource leadership. She was formerly people director at B&Q and, prior to that, held the role of human resources director at Jack Wills, Marks & Spencer, Topshop, and Woolworths South Africa. She has also spent a number of years of her career in executive search with Odgers Berndtson, covering senior appointments across both public and private sectors. Helena is a serving director and trustee of The Retail Trust and she previously served as a non-executive director of Salisbury NHS Trust and as a justice of the peace and independent advisor to the National Assembly of Wales.

“We are delighted that Helena is joining us at this important time for the business. Working with the Board, Helena's support and insight on implementing the recommendations from the independent HR policies and procedures review will be of great value,” David Bernstein CBE, executive chairman said in a press release by Ted Baker.

“Ted Baker has great people who have an obvious passion for what they do. I am really looking forward to working with the Board and the wider team,” Feltham said. (GK)
