Ted Baker global wholesale director steps down
Ted Baker has announced its global wholesale director, Ricky Green has stepped down from his role.
He first joined the fashion retailer in 1995 and was recently appointed global wholesale and partnerships director in March 2020.
Prior to joining Ted Baker, Green has held various roles in sourcing and buying across brands including Coles Menswear and Parkes Clothing.
Ted Baker said: “After 25 years at Ted Baker, Ricky Green has decided to leave the business. We thank him for his enormous contribution to the brand and wish him well for the future.”
“As part of separate changes to the executive team, a new group commercial and business development director role has been created to lead on driving growth across our retail, wholesale, international and licensing businesses."
“While a process is underway for a permanent appointment, Phil Clark, an executive board member, will assume the role on an interim basis.”
Last month, Ted Baker revealed plans to axe 500 jobs across retail and its head office as part of its latest finance strategy to save £6 million by the end of 2020.
This followed news that the struggling fashion retailer had raised £105 million through a stock issue to help see it through the Coronavirus pandemic.
