Phase Eight has appointed a new finance director as the retailer reveals it will operate over 90 international stores and concessions by the end of March.

The fashion retailer, which operates 304 UK stores and concessions, has hired Cameron Jack, the former senior director of acquisitions at financial services firm Close Brothers.

Jack, who started the role last week, has worked with Phase Eight on previous projects.

Jack’s appointment follows former finance director Ben Barnett’s promotion to the newly created role of commercial director at the end of last year.

Barnett said: “We have long been keen to hire Cameron and have been very careful in the selection process as it is a key hire for us.

“We have separately created the new role of commercial director to give the team greater bandwidth to collectively develop our international business.”

Phase Eight has been working hard to grow its international business and by the end of March it will have over 90 international stores and concessions, up from 11 in January last year.
