LONDON — Ulrik Garde Due is stepping down as chief executive officer of Temperley London amid a management reshuffle. His role will not be replaced.
Instead, Patricia Sancho, currently commercial director, has been promoted to president, while Matt Emerson, chief financial officer, will take on the additional role of chief operating officer, in moves aimed at simplifying the management structure to drive growth and profitability, the company said.
Garde Due had been with the company for just over two years and had helped to streamline its offer under one label, as well as reorganize and broaden product categories.
He will leave Temperley at the end of the month to pursue other interests, the company said.
Fabrizio Zappaterra, chairman of the board, thanked Garde Due for “consolidating the team and lines under one brand whilst developing our longer-term strategy.”
Alice Temperley, creative director, said in a statement: “I would personally like to congratulate Patricia and Matt and to thank them for their amazing work, focus and dedication. And I would like to thank Ulrik and wish him every success in the future.”
