Asos has announced that after six years with the company, Brian McBride will be stepping down as chair and non-executive director of the company’s board of directors on November 29, 2018, following the company’s next annual general meeting. He, the company added, will be succeeded by Adam Crozier, who will be appointed as Chair and Non-Executive Director, on the same day.
Commenting on the development, Ian Dyson, the company’s Senior Independent Non-Executive Director said in a statement: “On behalf of the board, I’d like to thank Brian for his contribution during a period of high growth for our company and I’d like to welcome Adam, who joins us at an equally exciting stage in our journey”.
Crozier, the company said, brings extensive boardroom experience, with directorships at Saatchi & Saatchi, Vue International, G4S, the Football Association, the Royal Mail and most recently ITV plc, where he served as CEO until June 2017. Adam also joined the Whitbread PLC board in April 2017, becoming its senior independent director in September 2017 and Chair in February 2018.
“The Asos story is truly impressive and I am tremendously excited to become part of it. I’m greatly looking forward to working with the team that is building a global powerhouse in online fashion,” added Crozier.
