Karstadt's Jennings joins Ted Baker board

Former Karstadt Group chief executive Andrew Jennings is joining the board of Ted Baker as a non-executive director.

Jennings, who stepped down from the German department store at the end of December, will join the board from February 1. He will be appointed to the audit, nomination and remuneration committees after a suitable period of induction.

He has also joined Australian department store Myer as senior retail adviser.

Prior to the three years he spent at Karstadt, Jennings held a number of senior executive positions at retailers including Saks Fifth Avenue in the US, Harrods and House of Fraser in the UK and Brown Thomas in Ireland. 

Ted Baker chairman David Bernstein said Jennings “brings a wealth of international retail experience gained over 40 years at some of the world’s most respected high-end speciality stores. His experience will be invaluable as we continue to develop the brand in the UK and internationally and we look forward to his contribution going forward.”

Ted Baker this morning unveiled its Christmas trading figures, showing retail sales had risen 18.3% for the eight weeks to January 4, with the UK and Europe business performing well.
