Moss Bros has announced a boardroom reshuffle with the appointment of Avis Darzins to the post of non-executive director.
Darzins will join office on September 1.
Non-executive director Maurice Helfgott is due to resign on October 1 after nine years at his role, while Alex Gersh will be on hand to replace him.
Helfgott has agreed to stay on the board and support chairman Colin Porter until the next annual general meeting in May 2020.
Moreover, Darzins has founded her own management consulting practice in 2013, following four years as director of business transformation at British media company Sky.
She has experience in business leadership roles at Arcadia, BHS, Mothercare and Littlewoods.
Porter said: “Avis’s significant track record in retail operational transformation is strategically important for the group as we look to strengthen the business for future growth.
“We are delighted she has decided to join the board to share her considerable experience as we pivot Moss Bros further to be a multichannel business offering with a strong ecommerce platform.
“I also thank Alex for assuming the additional role of senior independent non-executive director, and thank Maurice for agreeing to stay on the board until the next AGM and helping us to continue to develop the business.”
