Fashion group French Connection has appointed Dean Murray as a non-executive director.

Murray was formerly chief executive of Myriad Childrenswear, the parent company of Adams Childrenswear, which was bought out of administration by John Shannon at the beginning of last year.

Murray is chairman of UK technology retailer Tec7 at present.

Last week, French Connection revealed a new advertising campaign for its spring/summer collection, which uses the creative input of Fabien Baron. Baron is renowned for his work with French Vogue magazine, as well as brands such as Calvin Klein and Burberry.
