Wacoal Europe CEO Lewis to step down
Tracy Lewis, CEO of global lingerie business Wacoal Europe, is to step down after 11 years at the helm.
Lewis, who has been with the company for 13 years in total, will step down at the end of March. She will be succeeded by finance director Geoff Embley, who has been with the company since 2006. Lewis will support the transition for a short period following the handover in an advisory capacity.
During her tenure, Lewis oversaw the sale of the previously named Eveden Group to the Japanese owned Wacoal Group in 2012.
Wacoal Europe also expanded from being a UK-centric to an export-led supplier, opening offices in the US, Australia and across Europe, trebling turnover as a result.
This was followed by the integration of Wacoal Group's existing European subsidiaries into Wacoal Europe and the start of the design of Wacoal branded product, in addition to Wacoal Europe's portfolio of lingerie and swim brands such as Fantasie, Freya, Elomi, Goddess and Huit.
