Jaeger appoints new CEO
Fashion retailer Jaeger has appointed former Esprit chief product officer Colin Henry as its new chief executive.
Taking up his new role on 15 July, Henry succeeds Stewart Binnie who stood down as executive chairman in March.
Prior to Esprit, Henry held senior management roles at Umbro, Ralph Lauren, and Marks & Spencer.
Jaeger was acquired by private equity firm Better Capital in April 2012.
Nick Sanders, head of portfolio at Better Capital, said: “Over the last year, we have placed Jaeger on a positive trajectory and the business is now looking in good shape; I look forward to Colin building on this momentum in the coming months. His wealth of knowledge and experience of the retail sector, along with his strategic insight and creativity, will be invaluable in helping Jaeger to deliver its full international growth potential.”
Henry added: “I am enthused about getting involved with the business next month as I strongly believe it has a lot of potential, both in the UK and internationally. I look forward to working closely with Better Capital and helping to continue the good progress made since it acquired the business over a year ago.”
