Ted Baker Plc

("Ted Baker" or the "Group")

Appointment of Chairman

Ted Baker, the global lifestyle brand, today announces the appointment of John Barton as non-executive Chairman of the Board.

John, who will join the Board in July, brings a wealth of relevant experience to Ted Baker, having held senior non-executive positions across a number of leading consumer-facing businesses.

He is currently Chairman of easyJet plc, having been appointed in 2013. John has previously served as Chairman of Next plc and Cable and Wireless Worldwide plc and was also previously Senior Independent Director of both WH Smith plc and SSP Group plc.

Sharon Baylay will continue in her role as Acting Chair until John formally joins the Board.

Sharon Baylay, Acting Chair of Ted Baker, said:

"Following a thorough and competitive search process, the Board is delighted that John is joining us as Chairman and we look forward to welcoming him to Ted Baker.

His significant experience in a number of leading customer facing businesses, including very relevant experience from his time spent leading the Board at Next plc, will be of great value as we continue the journey to transform the business.

John Barton said:

"It is an honour to be appointed Chairman of this iconic British brand at such a critical time and I would like to extend my huge thanks to Sharon for leading the Board in the interim period.

These are unprecedented times, and while I do not underestimate the significant challenges ahead of us, Ted Baker has strong foundations from which to build: a refreshed and committed leadership team, fronted by Rachel Osborne; dedicated and loyal colleagues; a strong brand which resonates with customers; diversified income streams and a well-invested, omni-channel platform.

I look forward to working alongside my fellow Board members and leadership team to steer the Group through this period of transformation in the years ahead."

The Company confirms that there is no further information to be disclosed under the requirements of Listing Rule 9.6.13R in relation to the appointment.
