Wills will join the Superdry board as an executive director at the end of April.
Benedict Smith will remain as interim chief financial officer over the coming months to oversee the handover.
“After a thorough process to identify a new chief financial officer, led by our independent director Alastair Miller, Shaun emerged as the outstanding candidate for the role,” Superdry chief executive Julian Dunkerton said.
“Over the past three years, he has gained experience as a finance director at the very highest level in retail at M&S, and he knows our brand and business well.
“This will be invaluable as we emerge from the challenges of Covid and accelerate the reset of Superdry.”
Meanwhile, former Dixons Carphone group finance director, Khurram Uqaili has joined M&S as finance director of its clothing and home division, replacing Wills.
Uqaili will report to M&S chief financial officer Eoin Tonge.
