New Sportsgirl CEO named


Sportsgirl_LogoThe Sussan Group has reportedly appointed Colleen Callander as the new chief of Sportsgirl following the resignation of long-serving CEO Elle Roseby.

Callander joins the fast fashion chain after more than five years as CEO of Sussan Group’s womenswear brand, Sussan.

The management shake-up of the group, which is wholly owned by Naomi Milgrom and operates Sussan, Sportsgirl, and Suzanne Grae, comes following Roseby’s resignation to join fashion rival Supré, which was acquired by the Cotton On Group last month.

Roseby, who has been with Sportsgirl for 16 years, the past seven as CEO, is set to begin the new role with Supre in January.

In October, Cotton On Group CEO, Peter Johnson, said the appointment of Roseby was a positive development for Supré and the Cotton On Group.

“Mrs Roseby is a highly talented retailer whose skills will be invaluable in helping us build the Supré brand and take it to the next level,” he said.

“She will lead our plans to strengthen Supré’s market position, store network and digital channels, while exploring opportunities to expand the brand internationally. We look forward to welcoming her to the business.”
