Johnson takes over the role full time with immediate effect, and replaces Angela Spindler, who stepped down at the end of September 2018.

He was previously CEO of Financial Services for the N Brown Group, having joined in 2016. He has also held roles at Shop Direct, Sainsbury’s and Halifax.

Chairman Matt Davis praised Johnson’s “strategic thinking, pace, energy and focus” during his time as interim CEO.

In its most recent set of results, group sales at N Brown Group in the 18 weeks to 5 January fell 1.6% year on year, in a “challenging” and “highly promotional” market.

Product revenues at Simply Be and Jacamo were up 1.6% and 5.5% respectively, and by 5.9% and 6.8% for online only. JD Williams declined 3.3%. For online sales only, JD Williams was ahead by 6.9%. Sales from financial services for the period were up 9.7% on last year.
