Reiss names Christos Angelides as chief executive
Reiss has appointed Christos Angelides to the position of chief executive as part of a planned succession process.
Angelides has 30 years multichannel retail experience including 28 years at Next where he was group product director. From 2014, he was based in the US as president of Abercrombie and Fitch.
David Reiss, founder and chairman of Reiss, said: “I am delighted that Christos has agreed to lead Reiss going forward and look forward to working closely with him in order to ensure an orderly succession. He brings significant retail experience which will be invaluable as Reiss grows into a truly global fashion brand.”
In addition, Andy Lawrence has joined Reiss as head of international. Lawrence was previously at Ralph Lauren where he held a series of senior roles in Asia Pacific including head of Korea and Taiwan and senior director of business development for the region.
The appointments follow strong trading for Reiss in the six-week period to 7 January when total sales rose by 19.7% year-on-year.
