CEO, N Brown Group
Under Steve Johnson, N Brown Group, owner of JD Williams, Simply Be, Jacamo and Ambrose Wilson, returned to profitability in the first half of 2019. After acting as interim CEO since September 2018, Johnson’s position was ratified in February. He was previously N Brown Group CEO of financial services, having joined in 2016, and has held roles at Shop Direct, Sainsbury’s and Halifax.
In May, Johnson implemented a new strategy to simplify the brand proposition and refocus on a customer-centric UK model. The group relaunched its social media strategy, and closed its unprofitable international division and US marketing operation.
