Jaeger puts more jobs into consultation amid further departures

Premium retailer Jaeger has put more jobs into consultation, as it faces a further swathe of departures from its senior team.

Drapers understands that head of buying Sundari Gabriel, who has been at the business 18 months, is among those that has left.

It is thought creative director of menswear Jsen Wintle is poised to leave after just a few months, having joined the company in September, with his womenswear counterpart Sheila McKain-Waid expected to take on his responsibilities.

Part-time property director Andrew MacKenzie left last month to focus on consultancy work with Colliers Property, and within the pharmaceutical industry.

Jaeger has also put several roles into consultation including the whole buying department and a “small number” of head office staff.

Jaeger, which was bought by private equity firm Better Capital in 2012, made a number of people from its head office redundant in September last year, following the hire of Colin Henry as chief executive in July. These included chief operating officer Carolyn Springett, brand director Shailina Parti and retail operations director Mike Thompson.

That followed the departure of finance director Graham Edgerton, who left in June after a decade at the firm, international director David Hewitt and the surprise exit of Stewart Binnie who lasted just nine months as chairman.

A spokeswoman for the company declined to comment on the specific individuals.

She said: “Following a recent review of its organisational structure, Jaeger has commenced a short period of consultation with a small number of its head office team, based in Broadwick Street. As part of our ongoing focus on creating a strong, design–led offer with continued strategic investment in product and development, we are proposing to make certain changes which will underpin our plans to deliver future growth and exquisite product for our customers. 

“At this stage it is too early to indicate if redundancies will result as part of this process. We will provide a further update in due course and it remains business as usual for the company.”
