Lifestyle retailer Joules has appointed Marc Lombardo as finance director, who moves from Blacks Leisure.

Lombardo announced his departure last week from outdoor sports retailer Blacks Leisure as finance director after three years.  His start date for Joules is yet to be confirmed but he will sit on the board and report to Colin Porter, chief operating officer.

Tom Joule, chief executive and founder said: “We have been trying to find the right person for some time, as Joules is a unique business with a great team of directors. Marc is perfect for the role and we are excited about the wealth of financial experience that he will bring to the board.”
