Marks & Spencer has boosted its digital know-how on its board by appointing Andrew Fisher, the chairman of music app Shazam, as a non-executive director.
Fisher will join the retailer on December 1 and will also sit on the group’s nomination committee.
Fisher joined Shazam as chief executive in 2005, growing the app that identifies background music into a global mobile service with over 750 million users across 200 countries. It is now one of the world’s top 20 apps.
Chief executive Marc Bolland’s stated strategy is to make the firm a multichannel international retailer.
M&S also announced that Martha Lane Fox will step down as a non-executive director next April, having served for nine years.
