The Fragrance Shop appoints former JD Sports chief

Peter Cowgill

Online and physical men’s and women’s scent retailer The Fragrance Shop has appointed former JD Sports chairman and CEO Peter Cowgill as its first non-executive chairman of The Fragrance Shop.

Cowgill quit his role as executive chairman at the Bury-headquartered group suddenly in May, and was reportedly barred from working for any direct competitiors as part of his £5.5m severance deal at the time. He has taken up his new job with immediate effect.

Cowgill said he particularly looked forward to expanding the Manchester-HQd Fragrance Shop’s digital business in his new role: “I look forward to working with [The Fragrance Shop] closely on its expansion plans – particularly in its digital business, as it furthers its international footprint and in support of category expansion through acquisition and organic growth,” he said.
