Move of the Week: Superdry begins boardroom rebuild

The hiring of retail veteran Nick Gresham as Superdry’s new (interim) chief financial officer looks like a savvy move by Julian Dunkerton.

Gresham will join the fashion retailer on an interim basis, plugging the gap left by Ed Barker who resigned along with the vast majority of Superdry’s board – including chief executive Euan Sutherland – after Dunkerton and Peter Williams seized control of the business last month.

With the best part of three decades’ retail experience behind him working for household names such as Debenhams and Homebase, Gresham won’t be phased by the prospect of walking into a volatile boardroom where a new chair and acting chief executive are about to lose four non-executive directors when their notice period expires on July 1.
