UK: Sir Stuart Rose to join Fat Face as chairman
Rose will join Fat Face next month next month and take over as chairman on 26 July
Clothing and accessories retailer Fat Face has appointed former Marks & Spencer boss Sir Stuart Rose as its new chairman, replacing Alan Giles.
Rose, who has also previously served as chief executive of Arcadia Group, will join the board next month and take over as chairman on 26 July.
"Fat Face is now performing well and the company is positively positioned for a record year," Giles said.
"With the brand on firm foundations and a strong management team in place I feel that it is now time to hand over to a new chairman. I am confident that Stuart, working with Anthony Thompson, will be a powerful driver of yet further success for Fat Face."
Fat Face hailed the resilience of its business last month after a strong first half was followed by a "record" Christmas. Sales surged 11% to GBP85.7m (US$137.2m) in the six months to 1 December.
