From Digital Director to CEO: Andy Lightfoot moves on up at Space NK

Beauty retailer Space NK has promoted Andy Lightfoot from Group Digital Director to CEO.

"Andy's drive and determination coupled with his leadership skills in his new role of CEO will enable Space NK UK and US to demonstrate itself as a leading omnichannel and customer centric retailer,” says former CEO and now Executive Chairman Chris Garek.

"Retail is increasingly competitive, but we are bucking the trend of the High Street as we continue to open stores in both the UK and US and deliver ahead of market growth online,” Lightfoot, who joined Space NK in October 2016 as Group Digital Director, comments.

“Our unique position as the only multi-brand beauty specialist and our desire to place the customer at the centre of everything we do is the key to our success and must underpin everything we do as we prepare for the next stage of growth."
