Boohoo is to appoint former Shop Direct boss Mark Newton-Jones to its board, marking the etailer’s second key hire this week as it gears up for an IPO.
Newton-Jones is believed to be taking up a non-executive director role at etailer Boohoo, Drapers sister title Retail Week revealed.
He has a long track record in clothing etail, having worked as chief executive of Very and Littlewoods parent Shop Direct for eight years until he departed last year. He has also managed Next’s Directory business.
Boohoo is expected to reveal its £500m IPO plans on Friday.
