The announcement coincides with the departure of Neil Catto, who has stepped down as Executive Director after nearly 12 years with the group, the majority of which was spent as Chief Financial Officer.

Mahmud Kamani, Executive Chairman of Boohoo Group, said: "Alistair has extensive board-level experience with some great retail brands. We look forward to working with him and are confident that he will help us deliver our ambition to be the global fashion leader.

"Neil has been with the group for 12 years and is held in the highest regard for his substantial contribution. He has been instrumental in building the group from a one-brand-business and into a multi-brand platform."
