Two more appointments made to new-look Superdry board

Superdry have made two more appointments to its board of directors as the transformation at the top table continues.

The Cheltenham-based clothing giant have appointed Georgina Harvey and Faisal Galaria as non-executive directors, with Ms Harvey becoming chairman of the remuneration committee.

Both officially started in their roles on Monday as the transformation of the company since the return of Julian Dunkerton to the board gathers pace.

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 those roles, she spent seven years as Managing Director of Regionals at Trinity Mirror, sitting on the Executive Committee.

Faisal Galaria brings extensive digital expertise having worked as chief strategy and investment officer at Gocompare Group, where he helped lead the flotation on the London Stock Exchange.

He has held senior roles at a number of leading global digital businesses including Spotify, Kayak.com and Skype.

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."
