N Brown raids Original Factory Shop for new chief exec

Internet and home shopping retailer N Brown has appointed Original Factory Shop chief executive Angela Spindler as its new chief executive.

Spindler, who has been with the off-price fashion and homewares retailer since 2009, has also held roles including global managing director for George at Asda and managing director of Debenhams.

She will join N Brown, the parent company of retailers including Jacamo, Simply Be and Figleaves, before July 1.

Spindler will succeed Alan White, who after 25 years with the company announced in July last year his plans to retire.

N Brown chairman Andrew Higginson said “We are delighted that Angela has decided to join N Brown and lead it through the next phase of its exciting growth. She brings a tremendous breadth of experience to the role, most recently as a successful chief executive, and the Board firmly believes she has the personal qualities to lead the team, and the business, as it continues its growth online and internationally.

“I would like to say a particular thank you to Alan White, who has helped me to settle in, and who will stay on to ensure a proper handover to Angela.”

Spindler said: “N Brown is a fabulous business which has been very successfully adapted to benefit from the multi-channel retail revolution. I am really looking forward to working with a great team and to building on the momentum they have established. The business has some excellent brands and is well placed to deliver growth both in the UK and internationally.”

The Original Factory Shop said the search process for a new chief executive is already underway.
