Jo Staveley has joined the Brompton Board as a non-executive director.

A British entrepreneur, Staveley played a key role in leading the growth of High Street stalwarts L. K. Bennett and Cath Kidston.

A Brompton spokesperson said: "An astute businesswoman, with a natural understanding of product development, retail and brand awareness, Jo brings precisely the expertise we need to further improve our customers’ experience of buying and owning a Brompton, and will have an invaluable role as a sounding board in the development of more products."

Brompton sells through over 1,500 retailers in 41 countries across the globe, as well as through its own-branded Brompton Junction stores in Japan, China, Germany and Holland.
