Portman will re-join Moss Bros as non-executive director with effect from July 1, he will become chairman of the Audit Committee. He was previously with the company for three months in 2010 when he was interim chief financial officer.
Portman’s most recent executive role was as chief financial officer at Co-Operative Group and prior to this was chief executive at Britannic Group.
Chairman Debbie Hewitt said: “[Portman] has considerable experience of working with businesses and finance functions of multi-brand, multi-site operations, in turn around situations. We believe his experience will allow him to make an immediate contribution to the company and to the pace of progress.”
