Pentland Brands poaches CFO from Selfridges

Pentland Brands has appointed Selfridges’ Katrina Nurse as its new chief finance officer.

Nurse joins Pentland on 19 November from Selfridges, where she has been finance director for the past four years.

Before Selfridges, Nurse held senior finance roles at the Arcadia Group, including finance director roles for Wallis, Evans, Topshop and Topman.

The appointment follows the departure of Sam Gilburd, who decided to leave Pentland last year to take a career break, after 10 years at the company.

Nurse said: “Pentland held particular appeal for me being a consumer of many of their brands, but the opportunity to broaden my knowledge of wholesale operations and brand marketing was too good an opportunity to ignore. I look forward to making a positive contribution with my retail background.”

As a member of the Pentland Brands Executive, Nurse will lead the finance teams across the organisation.

Andy Long, chief executive of Pentland Brands, said: “Katrina has a strong track record within the fashion retailer sector, and we’re very much looking forward to her joining us in November. Over the past year we’ve transformed our business, we’ve acquired new brands and licenses, we’ve increased investment in our current portfolio and we continue to look at new brand investment opportunities, so Katrina is joining us at a really exciting time.”
