New Look has announced the appointment of Stuart MacKenzie to its board of directors, as a non-executive member, amid the coronavirus outbreak.
Mackenzie first joined New Look in 2015, where he held the role of non-executive chairman and became a non-executive director in 2017.
As a board member, Gnodde also represented South African company Brait, which currently has an 18.5% stake in the fashion retailer. Earlier this month, Gnodde stepped down from the position of CEO of Brait and departed from New Look on 1 March.
MacKenzie is currently the chief executive officer of Ethos Private Equity, a role which he has held since 2014, and has deep experience working with portfolio companies across numerous industries and all aspects of the private equity and venture capital value chain.
Alistair McGeorge, non-executive chairman, said: “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.”
