Pentland Brands appoints new chief finance officer

Pentland Brands has announced the appointment of Katrina Nurse as its new chief finance officer.

Katrina joins the business from Selfridges, where she has been finance director for the past four years. Prior to Selfridges, she held finance director roles for the Wallis, Evans, Topshop and Topman businesses.

Katrina said, “I’m really excited to be joining the Pentland family to lead the finance team, at such an interesting time in their evolution. Pentland held particular appeal for me being a consumer of many of their brands, but the opportunity to broaden my knowledge of wholesale operations and brand marketing was too good an opportunity to ignore. I look forward to making a positive contribution with my retail background.”

As a member of the Pentland Brands Executive, Katrina will lead the finance teams across the organisation.

Andy Long, chief executive officer, Pentland Brands, said, “Katrina has a strong track-record within the fashion retailer sector and we’re very much looking forward to her joining us in November.  Over the past year we’ve transformed our business, we’ve acquired new brands and licenses, we’ve increased investment in our current portfolio and we continue to look at new brand investment opportunities, so Katrina is joining us at a really exciting time”.
