Next Appoints New Non-Executive Director

Next - William Frost Way 725 x 500

We take pleasure in announcing that Venetia Butterfield will be joining NEXT as an independent non-executive director with effect from 2 April 2024.

Venetia is Managing Director of Cornerstone, the largest adult division of Penguin Random House. Previously, Venetia was Publisher of Penguin General and managed the Viking, Penguin Business and Penguin Life imprints.

Venetia brings to the Board her experience as an accomplished business leader and experienced marketing professional. Venetia's successful leadership of an independent business within a larger conglomerate will be particularly helpful as NEXT steadily increases the number of businesses it takes on within the Group through its Total Platform initiatives.

Venetia is on the Board of Governors of the Southbank Centre and was also Vice Chair of Governors for West London Free School Primary and Earl's Court Free School.

Upon appointment, Venetia will become a member of the Nomination, Audit and Remuneration Committees.

The Board confirms that no other disclosures need to be made under Listing Rule 9.6.13 in respect of this appointment.
