Designer outlet group, McArthurGlen, today has announced that its long-serving CEO, Julia Calabrese, will leave her position as CEO to assume a new role of Vice Chairman.

Succeeding Calabrese will be Susie McCabe and Joan Jove, who will operate as Co-CEO's.

McCabe is currently McArthurGlen’s Deputy CEO, a position she has held for the past two years following an extensive career in retail with major fashion brands.

She also spent 16 years at Ralph Lauren, holding a number of senior roles in both its full price and outlet businesses.

Jove, who is currently the group’s Managing Director, Southern Europe and Canada, has worked for McArthurGlen for 12 years on both the real estate development and operational sides of the business.

The appointments take immediate effect and all three executives will report to McArthurGlen Group Chairman, Joey Kaempfer.

Joey Kaempfer said: “After serving as our trusted and much-loved CEO for the past 18 years, Julia Calabrese has expressed her wish to step back from her full-time executive duties. I would like to thank Julia for her long service and dedication to our company over many successful years, and I am delighted that we will continue to benefit from her wise counsel as she takes on her new role.

“Succeeding Julia, we are promoting Susie McCabe and Joan Jove to the joint role of Co-CEO. Their respective backgrounds and skills will be a powerful combination as we continue to transform our business and find new ways to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.”

Julie Calabrese addded: “It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Joey and the team and all of our wonderful brands and business partners. I am confident they will all be in good hands as Susie and Joan take the reins and move the company forward.”
