Boohoo has announced it has appointed KPMG and Sir Brian Leveson to help it deliver on its change programme as it looks to become a more ethical business following the Leicester factory scandal.
Sir Brian reports directly to the board and will provide independent oversight of the change programme.
Likewise, Boohoo has appointed KPMG to support the change programme, noting it will in particular work with Boohoo’s ‘growing responsible sourcing and compliance team’ as well as existing supply chain auditors.
Commenting on the appointments was Mahmud Kamani who noted Boohoo is committed to change:
“I am encouraged by the progress that has been made to date by our teams since setting out our Agenda for Change programme in September. Myself and the board are fully committed to this programme, with the appointments of Sir Brian Leveson and KPMG bringing independent oversight, additional expertise and further transparency to a programme that will help us on our journey to lead the fashion e-commerce market globally in a transparent manner.”
