Sir Philip Green has appointed well-known businesswoman Karren Brady to chair the parent company of his Arcadia retail empire.
Baroness Brady, known for her role in The Apprentice alongside Amstrad founder Lord Sugar and as the chief executive of West Ham United Football Club, has assumed the role of non-executive director of Taveta, which owns Arcadia.
She succeeds Anthony Grabiner, who has been with the company for 15 years.
Green's Arcadia business runs high street fashion brands Topshop, Topman, Wallis, Miss Selfridge, Dorothy Perkins, Evans, Burton and Outfit.
Brady said: “It is a privilege to have been invited to chair the board and I look forward to working with my colleagues as we concentrate on driving the Arcadia brands forward on their global expansion."
