Nigel Oddy

New Look has reconfigured the makeup of its senior leadership team, appointing Nigel Oddy as its new chief executive as well as naming a new non-executive chair.

The fashion retailer announced today that Nigel Oddy will take the top job on January 1, having joined the business as chief operating officer in April.

It also said Alistair McGeorge will take up the non-executive chair role on the same day, having been executive chair since November 2017.

Oddy joined New Look from The Range, where he was chief executive for just over a year. Prior to his stint at the value business, Oddy was at House of Fraser for a decade, including the last two years as chief executive.
