Sports Direct seeks to appoint director to Findel board

Sports Direct has formally asked home shopping group Findel to convene a general meeting and consider the appointment of Ben Gardener as a director.

Gardener, who is managing director of intellectual property protection company International Brand Solutions, has worked for and with Sports Direct in various guises since 2004, including a four-year stint as global head of brands. It is understood he will represent Sports Direct’s interests on the Findel board.

Sports Direct bought an 18.9% stake in Findel, which owns online branded sports retailer Kitbag, in September.

Findel said its board will write to shareholders “in due course to convene the general meeting and, as required, to set out the board’s views and recommendation”.
