Superdry is pleased to announce the appointments of Georgina Harvey and Faisal Galaria to its Board, with effect from 29 July 2019. Georgina Harvey will become Chairman of the Remuneration Committee from the same date.

 

Georgina Harvey is an experienced non-executive director, who is Senior Independent Director of and Chair of the Remuneration Committee of McColls Retail Group plc. She also sits on the boards of William Hill plc and Big Yellow plc, and currently chairs the Remuneration Committees of both companies. Prior to developing her portfolio career, Georgina spent seven years as Managing Director of Regionals at Trinity Mirror, sitting on the Executive Committee.

Peter Williams, Chairman of the Board of Superdry, said:

 

"I am delighted to announce the appointment of these two outstanding individuals, who will prove strong additions to the Superdry Board. Georgina is a highly experienced non-executive director and remuneration committee chairman, while Faisal brings world-class digital expertise to the board, skills which I believe will be of huge benefit to the business.

 

'Along with the appointments of Helen Weir and Alastair Miller announced earlier this month, we now have the right Board to support the business as we set out to reinvigorate the Superdry brand and improve the financial performance of the company."
