SuperGroup, owner of fashion brand Superdry, has poached Nigel Jobson, a director at its property agent Jones Lang LaSalle, as its new head of property.

Jobson will join SuperGroup “at the end of the year”, and will help to further expand the business.

Jobson has worked at Jones Lang LaSalle, and formerly Churston before it was acquired by Jones Lang LaSalle, for nine years, and has advised SuperGroup chief executive Julian Dunkerton on his expansion from six to 57 stores.

Dunkerton said: “Nigel will really bolster our team to deliver strong growth in the future.  This is a very significant appointment as we move forward.”

Jobson said: “I am looking forward to joining SuperGroup as the company looks to double the size of their UK property portfolio, and also expand across Europe and globally.”

Jones Lang LaSalle will continue to work with SuperGroup.
