UK: N Brown names Spindler as CEO
Internet and catalogue retailer N Brown has poached The Original Factory Shop's CEO Angela Spindler to lead the business.
She will join the business, which operates the Figleaves, Jacamo and Simply Be brands, before 1 July and succeed Alan White, who after 25 years with the company, the last 10 years as CEO, is set to retire and build a portfolio of non-executive roles.
"We are delighted that Angela has decided to join N Brown and lead it through the next phase of its exciting growth," said chairman Andrew Higginson.
"She brings a tremendous breadth of experience to the role, most recently as a successful CEO, and the board firmly believes she has the personal qualities to lead the team, and the business, as it continues its growth online and internationally.
"I would like to say a particular thank you to Alan White, who has helped me to settle in, and who will stay on to ensure a proper handover to Angela."
