Mulberry chairman to step down

Mulberry non-executive chairman Godfrey Davis will be stepping down from the luxury brand’s board next month.

Due to relinquish his role on 30 September, he will be succeeded as chairman by Mulberry non-executive director Chris Roberts.

Davis joined the brand in 1987 as finance director and subsequently became chief executive then chairman. In a statement, Mulberry said he will remain associated with the business as life president in a non-board role so it can continue to benefit from his experience.

Thierry Andretta, Mulberry chief executive, said: “I would like to thank Godfrey for the outstanding contribution he has made to the group. Over the past 10 years he has provided sound counsel, direction and support to the board of directors and we wish him well for the future. I am delighted to welcome Chris to the role of chairman at Mulberry and am looking forward to working more closely with him.”

Roberts was appointed to the Mulberry board in 2002 and is currently managing director of Como Holdings, a company owned by Ong Beng Seng and  Christina Ong, who also own Chalice Limited, a 56.2% shareholder in Mulberry.

Mulberry said it intends to appoint an additional independent non-executive director and name a senior independent director in the near future.

Roberts said: “Mulberry is a unique business that has continued to evolve while staying true to its heritage as a sustainable luxury brand. I would like to thank Godfrey for his terrific service to the group, and I am looking forward to working more closely with the board and management to continue to drive forward our strategy.”
