Karen Millen has appointed Tesco chief customer officer Robin Terrell as non-executive director.
Terrell, who has worked for Tesco for more than three years, took up the role this month.
The online specialist has racked up a wealth of experience during his extensive retail career, including interim UK managing director and group multichannel director at Tesco.
Before he joined the grocer, Terrell held a number of senior roles including executive director of multichannel and international at House of Fraser, mananging director of John Lewis Direct and chief operating officer at Figleaves.
According to his LinkedIn, Terrell currently holds non-executive director roles with companies including Southeast Asia ecommerce site Lazada and Tesco Mobile.
Karen Millen chairman Neil McCausland said: “We’re extremely pleased Robin is joining Karen Millen as a non-executive director, bringing his vast experience of working with some of the most successful multichannel retailers around the globe.
“As we grow the business and continue to focus on putting the customer at the heart of everything we do at Karen Millen, Robin’s digital expertise and emphasis on the customer journey, both online and in store will be invaluable.”
Earlier today, Drapers revealed that Karen Millen’s chief financial officer Andrew Ware is to depart the retailer to join a private equity fund. Office CFO Emily Tate will replace Ware in September.
Karen Millen recorded an operating loss of £9.7m for the year ended February 28 2015, down from a profit of £1.9m the year before.
