Reebok's Global Creative Director to leave role
Reebok's Global Creative Director Kerby Jean-Raymond is to leave his role on 1 March 2022 after less than two years.
The founder of luxury label Pyer Moss started working with Reebok in 2017 when he introduced his fashion line, and was appointed as Global Creative Director in September 2020. His last product launch of Reebok by Pyer Moss - Collection 4 is set to launch in late March.
Jean-Raymond said: “I enjoyed my time with Reebok and wish the company well in all of its future endeavors."
Reebok President Matt O’Toole added: “We want to sincerely thank Kerby for his many contributions to Reebok. The positive impact he has made on the brand will be felt for years to come. We wish him the very best.”
Reebok changed hands last August, when Adidas sold it to Authentic Brands Group for £1.8 billion. The majority cash deal was expected to complete in the first quarter of 2022 and means the sports footwear brand will join Authentic Brands' growing stable of labels including Forever 21, Brooks Brothers, Barneys New York, Tretorn, Van Heusen and Frye.
The brand announced a new partnership deal with Authentic Brands Group (ABG) last December, which will see its apparel and footwear for men, women and kids stocked in more than 2,000 JD Group stores and e-commerce sites across North America and Europe.
