Home shopping group N Brown’s new chief executive Angela Spindler took up her role today.
Spindler joined from the Original Factory Shop where she held the same position. Her priorities at N Brown, a £750m home shopping business, are expected to include growing online sales, building its burgeoning stores business and ensuring its overseas arm in the US and Germany turns a profit.
Spindler succeeded Alan White, who revealed he was to retire last July after 25 years with the business including the last 10 as chief executive. He plans to build a portfolio of non-executive roles.
As she handed over the reins to her successor Tony Page at Original Factory Shop, Spindler last month revealed a 30% surge in EBITDA to £13m at the value chain.
