Punch chief Ian Dyson takes ASOS non-exec role

ONLINE FASHION retailer ASOS has recruited experienced finance chief Ian Dyson as its senior independent non-executive.

Dyson, who serves as Punch Taverns chief executive, has held some of the UK’s most senior finance roles. He spent five years as Marks & Spencer’s group finance and operations director, and as group FD of Rank Group. He also currently chairs the audit committee at Betfair.

Brian McBride, chairman of ASOS, said: “Ian has a wealth of experience of being at the forefront of large UK listed consumer-led businesses and has strong understanding of both the retail industry and of technology. He brings a new perspective to an already experienced non-executive team and we welcome him to the ASOS board.”

Dyson quit Marks & Spencer the day after its new chief executive Marc Bolland joined, to serve at Punch. At the time Dyson said the timing “was not perfect”. He was interviewed by sister publication Financial Director in 2007 during his Marks & Spencer tenure.
