Marks & Spencer chairman Sir Stuart Rose has been appointed to private equity firm Bridgepoint’s European Advisory Committee.
It is the first role Rose has taken since announcing he would leave M&S. He steps down in January. Rose is also a non-executive director of landlord Land Securities and chairman of Business in the Community.
Bridgepoint backs lifestyle retailer Fat Face among others.
Rose said: “Bridgepoint is one of Europe’s leading private equity groups and a major investor in retail. I am greatly looking forward to working closely with the team and providing consumer insight for their investments.”
Bridgepoint managing partner William Jackson said: “I’m delighted that Stuart is joining Bridgepoint as an adviser. He’s had a fantastic business career and has unparalleled experience in the retail world where Bridgepoint has made substantial investments over the years. It will be great to have him on the team.”
