Practicology's Martin Newman joins White Stuff board

Lifestyle retailer White Stuff has appointed Practicology chief executive Martin Newman as a non-executive director as Alastair Kerr steps down after nearly six years.

Newman, who has a strong background in ecommerce and multichannel and recently acted as a judge for the PayPal Drapers and Retail Week Etail Awards, will take on the reins from September 1.

Chairman Debbie Hewitt said: “He has very valuable experience of working at board level with retail businesses and is culturally aligned to the strong customer ethos that permeates White Stuff. His experience will enable him to make an immediate contribution to the company and accelerate our progress in online.”

Newman added: “There is a significant opportunity to develop both the multichannel offering and internationalisation of the business and I am looking forward to working with all of the White Stuff team to deliver that growth.”

Kerr is stepping down having joined the board in 2009. Hewitt said: “He has made a considerable contribution during his tenure and we are very grateful for the key role he has played in planning and delivering the board’s succession plans. He leaves with our very best wishes for the future.”
