Pumpkin Patch has appointed two new directors to the board.

The childrenswear retailer has appointed Rod Duke as a non-executive director and Peter Schuyt as an independent non-executive director. Duke will join the Board in June and Schuyt will join in August.

“We are delighted to have two high calibre and experienced directors joining the Board. Rod’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,” chairperson Jane Freeman said.

“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.”
