Superdry has appointed an interim chief financial officer to fill the gap left by the departing Nick Gresham.

Benedict Smith took on the role today after Mr Gresham left the fashion retailer last month following little more than a year in the role.

Mr Smith has 18 years of experience in chief financial roles, having worked in the retail sector at businesses including Harrods, Hunter Boots, Game Digital and Spirit Group.

Most recently he served as interim chief financial officer at Dennis Publishing Group and is non-executive director at McColl's Retail Group an a member of the remuneration and audit committees.

Superdry chairman of the board Peter Williams said: "I am delighted we have secured an interim CFO with such extensive experience in senior finance roles in the retail sector.

"This is an important step in giving Superdry leadership and stability in a critical area of the business during an important time."

Mr Gresham stepped down last month having taken over in an interim capacity in June last year, moving into the role on a permanent basis two months later.
