Frasers Group appoints new directors to board

Shirebrook-based Frasers Group has appointed a number of new directors to its board.

Helen Wright, Global CEO, Sergio Rossi, will be appointed as non-executive director, and Frasers’ David Al-Mudallal, chief operating officer, and Ger Wright, managing director, sports, join the board as executive directors.

The Group has also announced the intended appointment of Sir Jon Thompson, former CEO, Financial Reporting Council, as non-executive director. It is expected that Sir Jon will be appointed later in the year, when his current commitments allow.

David Daly, chair of the board, Frasers Group, said: “Much has changed at Frasers over recent years and today is another significant milestone in our transformation as we welcome new high-calibre individuals to the board.

“I know that we will benefit from their leadership and expertise. I’m also delighted that their appointments further diversify our board, ensuring that we have the range of skills and views required to enable the future success of the Elevation Strategy.”

Michael Murray, CEO of Frasers Group, said: “Today’s appointments reflect the progress we have made to date on Frasers’ transformation and Elevation Strategy, as well as our ambitions for the future of the Group.

“I am pleased to welcome Helen Wright to Frasers and to the board and very much look forward to welcoming Sir Jon later this year. Helen’s experience of driving transformation at global luxury brands, combined with Jon’s expertise in corporate governance and major project management, will help shape the execution of our long-term strategy.

“In addition, Ger and David have both made enormous contributions to the ongoing success of our strategy, delivering operational excellence and empowering our business to excel. I am confident that their contribution to the board will help drive Frasers Group to new heights and future success.”
