Directorate change


Appointment of Chief Financial Officer


24 June 2015


The Board of SuperGroup Plc ('Company') today announces that Nick Wharton, who has been Interim Chief Financial Officer of the Company since 25 February 2015, has joined the board of the Company as Chief Financial Officer with immediate effect.


Nick was previously CEO of Dunelm Group plc and before that CFO of Halfords Group Plc. During his four years at Dunelm, Nick significantly strengthened the customer offer while at the same time creating a robust infrastructure, more sophisticated retail systems and a more advanced multi-channel proposition. In his eight year career at Halfords, he held both finance and strategy roles and led the separation process from its former owner, The Boots Company, in preparation for the IPO of Halfords in 2004. Prior to this, Nick worked in senior finance positions at Boots Opticians, Boots Healthcare International, Do-it-All Limited and Cadbury Schweppes. Nick is a chartered accountant and has been a non-executive director of Mothercare plc since November 2013.


Peter Bamford, Chairman, said:


"I am delighted to announce Nick's appointment. During his time in the interim role he has had a highly positive impact. His deep financial management skills and broad retail and business experience will be great assets to SuperGroup."


As previously indicated, SuperGroup will publish its 2015 full-year results on 9 July 2015.


There are no further disclosures to be made under LR 9.6.13.
