Fresh from setting a record when it came to sacking female directors after the 2008 Just Group takeover, billionaire rag trader Solomon Lew today has further risked his reputation with women by appointing disgraced former David Jones boss Mark McInnes as CEO of Premier Retail.

The announcement was buried on page 21 of this morning’s Premier Investments results presentation that was brought forward after a board meeting last night that saw the incumbent CEO, former Just Group managing director Jason Murray, instantly sacked.
