Lustman, who helmed the upmarket fashion brand Hobbs for more than four years, will take up the role at the kitchenware retailer from June 25. 

Prior to leading Hobbs, Lustman held senior positions at retailers including John Lewis, Warehouse and Aurora/Mosaic fashions.

She is also currently a non-executive director at fashion group N Brown

The new appointment comes as current non-executive director Luke Kingsnorth announced his intention to step down from the same date, to “focus on other professional commitments”. 

Lustman will assume the role of chair of the retailer’s remuneration committee and be a member of the nomination committee and the audit and risk committee. 

ProCook non-executive chair Greg Hodder said: “We are delighted to welcome Meg to the ProCook board as she brings a wealth of retail experience, having led the UK and international growth of some of the UK’s best-known retailers. This will be invaluable to the business as we continue to build on the growing momentum in our performance.

“In addition, I would like to thank Luke for the consistently high quality of his contribution to the board during his time with us, since our IPO.”
