​Ted Baker bolsters non-exec board with ex-Sports Direct CFO

Ted Baker New York

Ted Baker has added former Sports Direct chief financial officer Jon Kempster to its non-executive board.

The struggling fashion retailer, which warned on profits last week as chief executive Lindsay Page and chair David Bernstein both exited with immediate effect, has bolstered its non-executive board with Kempster.

The former Sports Direct chief financial officer will act as chair of the audit and risk committee and also join the retailer’s remuneration committee with immediate effect.

His appointment coincides with the departure of non-executive director Ron Stewart, who has been on the Ted Baker board for nine years, with immediate effect.
