TOKYO — Esprit Holdings Limited said today it has tapped former Puma executive Melody Harris-Jensbach for the newly created role of chief product and design officer, effective immediately.
Esprit is in the process of revamping its image as part of a drastic restructuring plan aimed at getting the retailer back on track. In September, it announced plans to pull out of the North American market as well as a few other European ones to focus on core markets such as China, Germany and Benelux.
