Boohoo has appointed Tim Morris as a non-executive director.
Morris is also currently group general counsel and company secretary at TalkTalk Telecom Group Limited, which was on the main list of the London Stock Exchange until March 2021 and which he joined prior to its IPO in 2010.
He is also a founding partner of Freston Ventures Investments LLP, which invests in a number of private businesses including Five Guys Europe, in addition to various indirect private equity and investment funds.
Morris is a solicitor who worked in private practice before 2000 – specialising in corporate finance. In addition to his new non-executive director role, he will also become a member of the audit, nomination, remuneration, and risk committees.
It comes as the e-commerce retailer also announced that Pierre Cuilleret is stepping down from his position as non-executive director with immediate effect after serving a four-year tenure.
Mahmud Kamani, group executive chairman at Boohoo, said: “I am delighted to welcome someone of Tim’s calibre to the group and look forward to his contribution. His extensive experience will broaden and enrich the board’s overall expertise and provide a high level of scrutiny and accountability.
“On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Pierre for his positive contribution to the group throughout his period of service. His business expertise, integrity and wisdom have greatly assisted during a period in which the group has seen significant growth and expansion.”
