Magazine guru joins the board of leading women’s fashion group

• Frank is one of Australia’s most experienced publishing executives

Former Pacific Magazine publisher and editor Jackie Frank has been appointed to the board of a major Australian women’s retailer.

Noni B Group recently announced the appointment of Frank as a non-executive director of the company with immediate effect.

Frank is one of Australia’s most experienced publishing executives with a background and understanding of the retail and fashion sector.

The inaugural editor of Australian marie claire magazine, Frank was general manager of Pacific Magazines overseeing the fashion, beauty, health and custom sections for one of the country’s largest publishing divisions before stepping down last year.

Chairman of Noni B Richard Facioni said, “We’re very pleased and fortunate to welcome Jackie to the board of Noni B. Her knowledge and experience, particularly her understanding of our customer, will be invaluable as we continue to grow Noni B to becoming one of the pre-eminent women’s apparel retailers in Australia.”

Throughout her career, Frank has been a strong advocate for equal rights in the workplace and has been committed to making a difference to the lives of Australian women through her involvement in a number of organisations and campaigns.

“I have hardly placed two feet on the ground, but I wouldn’t have it any other way,” Frank told Mediaweek recently about life since leaving the publishing business.

She launched her B Frank Group late last year with Seed a foundation client. The business continues to be Seed’s creative agency and next week work starts on shooting the new campaigns for Seed’s range of women and children’s wear.

Fank also joined the board of Executive Health Solutions (EHS) with David Baffsky, Ian Ferrier and John Eales. EHS delivers professional and comprehensive health programs and assessments that offer real benefits to companies and individuals.

B Frank Group is also developing an e-commerce site for a fashion brand that wants to launch a beauty vertical.
