Mahmud Kamani

The former chairman of New Look and chief executive of Matalan has joined the board at Boohoo.

Alistair McGeorge has become an independent non-executive director at the Manchester fashion giant.

He also succeeds Brian Small as its deputy chairman and will act as chairman of the company’s audit committee. McGeorge was chief executive of Liverpool-headquartered Matalan for almost four years from the end of 2006 before joining New Look for three years from May 2011. He is currently chairman of Burnley-headquartered The Original Factory Shop.

Former Boohoo chief financial officer Neil Catto has also stepped down from the board. Catto was succeeded as CFO by Shaun McCabe last year but remained onboard as a director.

Group executive chairman Mahmud Kamani said: “Alistair has extensive board-level experience with some great retail brands.

“We look forward to working with him and are confident that he will help us deliver our ambition to be the global fashion leader.”
