N Brown Group has appointed former Womenswear Trading Director at Debenhams, Sara Bradley, as its new Group Buying Director.

Bradley will join on 27 April 2022 and will focus on the elevation of N Brown’s product offer across each of strategic brands, which include JD Williams, Simply Be and Jacamo.

With over 20 years of experience in the fashion industry, Bradley has held senior leadership positions at Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s and George at Asda.

She began her career at the Arcadia Group, where she worked her way up to become the Buying Director at Dorothy Perkins. She left her last position at Debenhams in May 2021, having joined in November 2017.

Bradley will replace Shailina Parti, who took over as N Brown Group’s Buying Director in February 2020 on a contract basis, and is leaving to “pursue an exciting opportunity in India.”

In her new role, Bradley will report into Sarah Welsh, CEO of Retail, who said: “I am delighted to welcome Sara to N Brown. She brings a wealth of experience from across the fashion industry and is a truly passionate leader who shares our ambition to deliver unique and exciting product for our customers.”

Bradley added: “I have watched N Brown’s progress for many years from afar, and I am truly excited to be joining a business that has such recognisable and well-loved brands.

“As part of the team, I am looking forward to working to further enhance the product offer, both through in-house design and third-party partnerships that resonate with our loyal customers.”
