64 Alistair McGeorge

Chairman, New Look

Alistair McGeorge was brought in from Matalan in April to take New Look back to its affordable, fast-fashion roots. He has been emphatic about the retailer’s strategy: “We have to go back and reset what we are all about. We were fast fashion and slow supply chain.” Despite the slowdown, New Look remains one of the biggest value players on the high street and McGeorge will focus on the UK as part of his turnaround, including store refurbishments. Multichannel and international will grow off the back of a strong UK business, he said, with womenswear remaining the “single most important thing to get right”.
