LONDON — Gieves & Hawkes has added three new members to its senior management team. Ray Clacher is now managing director of the brand worldwide; Jason Basmajian has officially joined as creative director after a six-year stint at Brioni, and Simon Baker has taken on the role of marketing director.
“We want to be Britain’s leading men’s brand — make Gieves & Hawkes relevant again,” said Clacher, who has been a part of the G&H team for more than 10 years in roles including retail director and commercial director. For the past few years, he has led the brand’s expansion into China, where there are now 112 stores, with 12 more to open this year.
