today Jan 23, 2018
British retailer Superdry has announced the departure of chief financial officer Nick Wharton to pursue a ‘plural career’ after more than two years in the role.
He will be succeeded by Ed Barker, currently director of group finance at the clothing brand. He has been previously chief financial officer at Sainsbury and group financial controller at Burberry. Barker will join the Superdry board on a date to be confirmed during the second quarter of the year.
CEO Euan Sutherland said: "Nick has been a key part of the team leading the repositioning of Superdry as a global digital brand which has demonstrated world-leading capabilities and a strong track record of strategic and financial delivery. Nick has concluded that the time is now right for him to move towards a plural career. I would like to thank him both personally and on behalf of the entire Board for his huge contribution to Superdry and wish him every success for the future."
He added: "I am delighted that Ed is joining us as we embark on the next phase of our ambitious growth plans. He has strong experience of building brands and leading in competitive multi-channel businesses through his previous roles at Sainsbury and Burberry. We look forward to welcoming him to the Superdry team."
