New Look has appointed Stuart MacKenzie to its board as a non-executive
director, replacing John Gnodde who stepped down on 1 March.
MacKenzie has been the CEO of Ethos Private Equity since 2014 and has
experience working with portfolio companies across various industries and
all aspects of the private equity and venture capital value chain.
New Look non-executive chairman Alistair McGeorge said in a statement:
“On behalf of the board I would like to thank John for his support and
contribution to New Look over the last five years. We wish him all the best
in his future endeavors.
“I am delighted to welcome Stuart to the board. We look forward to
working with him and benefitting from his expertise.”
The news comes as New Look, like numerous other fashion companies,
struggles to cope with the impact of Covid-19. Last week, the retailer halted its production and requested a
three-month rent holiday from its landlords to minimise the impact
of Covid-19 on the business.
