Charity shop manager Alan Sherratt will draw on years of retail experience at big name stores to make a success of his new role.
Alan, who worked for five years at Selfridges and two years at Harvey Nichols, will now run two Sussex Beacon shops.
He is all ready coming up with ideas to increase sales at the stores in St James's Street, Brighton and George Street, Hove.
Alan said: "I really wanted to work for a local charity. Brighton is my home and I felt it was important to me to work for a charity that makes a difference in Brighton. What could be a better place than The Sussex Beacon."
He plans to increase stock of children's wear and wants to create eye-catching window displays to attract customers.
Funds raised support The Sussex Beacon, a dedicated HIV centre which supports people living with HIV in Sussex.
Volunteers are also needed to help Alan at both stores. For more details visit either shop or call Margot Uden at The Sussex Beacon on 01273 694222.
