UK fashion retailer Supergroup has hired Nigel Jobson as its new Head of Property, starting in the job at the end of this year.
Jobson is currently Director of the retail agency team at global property company Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL).
Supergroup became aware of Jobson after he advised the retailer’s CEO Julian Dunkerton on its expansion strategy which has seen its portfolio grow from six to 57 stores.
Guy Grainger, Head of UK Retail at JLL, said: “This is a really exciting move for Nigel and we wish him all the very best. It is a compliment that one of today’s most exciting retail brands is sourcing expertise from the JLL retail team.
“Supergroup is an important client for us and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.”
Before JLL, Jobson worked for Churston Heard as part of a property career that has spanned almost a decade.
Jobson commented: “After a great nine years with JLL and Churston Heard I am looking forward to joining Supergroup as the company looks to double the size of its UK property portfolio, and also expand across Europe and globally.”
