Unbound Group appoints former New Look CFO to board
Unbound Group has announced the appointment of Alastair Miller as Independent Non-Executive Director, effective immediately.
Miller has also been appointed Chair of the group's Audit and Risk Committee and will become a member of the Remuneration Committee and Nominations Committee, with effect from 31 December 2022.
Miller is currently a Non-Executive Director and Chairman of the Audit Committee at Superdry. He previously served as CFO of New Look from 2000 until 2014, which he joined from RAC Ltd where he was Group Finance Director. He is also a Non-Executive Director of NewRiver REIT plc.
The appointment coincides with the group's restructuring plans, which will see the number of Independent Non-Executive Directors reduce from three to two from 31 December 2022.
Current Independent Non-Executive Directors Paul Goodson and Suki Thompson will be stepping down from the board. The group said these changes reflect a "more appropriate balance in light of the future needs of the business".
Neil Johnson, Chair of the Board at Unbound Group, said: "I am delighted to welcome Alastair Miller to the board. His recent and relevant expertise and proven abilities will further strengthen governance and will add significant strategic value to the board and the group.
"I would also like to thank Paul Goodson and Suki Thompson, who will be leaving the Board at the end of December. Paul has made a major contribution to the board's effectiveness over the past sive years. More recently, Suki has been a visionary support as the Unbound Group business model was created.
"The board restructure and streamlining forms part of our wider focus on costs across the business."
