The head of international brands at India's largest fashion apparel retailer, Madura Garments, has left the company just days after helping to launch the Esprit label in the country.

Sailesh Chaturvedi is moving on to lead Benetton's Asia-Pacific wholesale trading based out of Hong Kong.

Esprit, which recently opened its first store in Bangalore, is the second super-premium international fashion brand to launch in India. Tommy Hilfiger was first introduced through the Arvind Brands fold.
