Next eyes growth and appoints new non-executive director

Next has appointed Venetia Butterfield as an independent non-executive director. She will join the business on 2nd April.

Venetia is the MD of Cornerstone, the largest adult division of Penguin Random House. Previously, she was publisher of Penguin General and managed the Viking, Penguin Business and Penguin Life imprints.

Venetia brings to the board experience as an accomplished business leader and experienced marketing professional. Her 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, says the group.

Upon appointment, Venetia will become a member of Next's nomination, audit and remuneration committees.
