Boohoo Group has announced the appointment of Shaun McCabe as its new non-executive director with immediate effect.
He will join the firm’s audit committee and also sit on the remuneration and nomination committees.
McCabe’s appointment is one of two non-executive board appointments Boohoo Group is expected to make in the wake of suggestions made in a review of its supply chain in September.
- Boohoo, Nike and H&M deny Uighur forced labour in supply chains
- Boohoo’s sold-out investor to overhaul company practice after factory scandal
- PwC resigns as Boohoo auditor
Part of the report featured a detailed audit of its supply chain in which Boohoo Group must publish a list of all suppliers by the end of next year.
McCabe is currently Trainline’s chief financial officer and a non-executive director at AO World.
His career includes stints as Asos international director and vice president of finance at Amazon Europe.
“As executive chairman, I am committed to supporting and driving our agenda for change to build a better Boohoo for the benefit of all of the group’s stakeholders,” Boohoo Group executive chair Mahmud Kamani said.
“On behalf of the board I am delighted to welcome Shaun to the group. His deep knowledge and experience of ecommerce and retail will be a great asset to the board.
“As a group we are committed to implementing our agenda for change that will help us on our journey to lead the fashion ecommerce market globally, and look forward to providing further regular updates on our progress in due course.”
McCabe added: “I am delighted to be joining Boohoo at an exciting time when it is implementing its agenda for change.
“Having spoken extensively with fellow members of the board, I look forward to helping the group add further independent experience and increased oversight on matters of compliance and business practices.”
