SuperGroup has poached Reiss’s European retail director Claire Arksey as its new head of retail.

Arksey, who has spent five years at Reiss, will shape and implement the Superdry brand owner’s UK retail strategy. She replaces John Kingston who left the retailer late last year.

She joins the brand as it opens a further two floors of its new Regent Street flagship store.

Prior to her role at Reiss, Arksey held positions at Ted Baker and Gap.
