Pumpkin Patch appoints new directors

Specialty childrenswear retailer Pumpkin Patch has appointed two new directors to its board.

One is the deputy chairman and MD of successful homewares retailer Briscoe Group, Rod Duke. 

The other is Peter Schuyt, currently a director of Tatua Dairy Company, Port Nelson and Landcare Research, amongst others, and previously a senior manager with the NZ Dairy Board, NZ Milk Products and NZ Post.

Duke will join the board this month, Schuyt in August.

Pumpkin Patch chairperson Jane Freeman said Duke’s retail, supply chain and procurement experience is well known “and we are looking forward to him using that experience to support the Company execute its long term strategies in those critical areas of our business”.

“Peter has considerable commercial executive finance experience and has held a variety of positions at a diverse range of organisations. He has spent many years with organisations that operate international distribution models; this experience will be invaluable as Pumpkin Patch follows its international growth strategies into the future”.
