UK: Jaeger shuffles senior management team
Luxury UK fashion brand Jaeger has announced a series of management hires following the departure of chief operating officer Carolyn Springett and brand director Shailina Parti.
Liza Webb has been appointed director of women's wear, while Caroline Lee joins as director of menswear and e-commerce. Both previously held positions at retailer Marks & Spencer (M&S).
Jaeger has also appointed former Burberry operations director for Europe, Michaela Moore, as head of outlets. She will join Kate Cornell, who has been named head of strategic planning. Harriet Castle has been hired as director of human resources.
The newly-created appointments will take immediate effect. As a result of the restructure, the COO and brand director positions are no longer required.
CEO Colin Henry said the new senior management team will play an "integral" part in transforming Jaeger "to ensure it builds on its position as an iconic British brand both online and in store".
