Former Marks & Spencer multichannel director Dom McBrien has joined fashion and homewares retailer The White Company.

McBrien exited M&S last month after two years leading the trading side of its multichannel team. He was poached from New Look by M&S multichannel chief Laura Wade-Gery and was one of her key recruits when she joined the retailer.

He joined The White Company this month as multichannel director and reunites with former New Look colleague Will Kernan who is chief executive of the fashion and home accessories retailer.

The White Company, which started life as a home shopping company, has a substantial online business. It is supported by 38 stores.
