Stewart Binnie, the former non-executive president of Aurora Fashions, has been appointed as executive chairman of luxury fashion brand Jaeger, replacing Harold Tillman.

The changes to the senior management team are aimed to ensure the business moves in the right direction after it was acquired by investment firm Better Capital in April. 

Meanwhile, Carolyn Springett will remain as managing director, with Graham Edgerton as finance director.

Jaeger, which has 40 freestanding stores, also revealed it has appointed a brand director and new heads of international and e-commerce to strengthen its management team.
