Clarks has appointed leaders for its European and Asia-Pacific operations, and made new appointments to its board.
Fossil Group Asia-Pacific senior vice-president Jack Quinlan will become Clarks’ Asia-Pacific regional president.
Quinlan (pictured) will take up his new role in August. He joined Fossil Group in 2011, after working at Nike for nearly 10 years, departing as global merchandising director. He has also held roles at Timberland and Country Road Clothing.
Meanwhile, former Boots Opticians managing director Ben Fletcher has joined Clarks as managing director of the European region. Fletcher is currently a non-executive director at the British Retail Consortium.
He initially joined Boots in 2011 as commercial finance director.
Chief commercial officer Steve Finlan said: “[Quinlan and Fletcher] will play important roles in the transformation and future success of Clarks.”
It also appointed two independent non-executive directors at the start of the month: consultant Tobias Zimmerer and digital adviser Tanya Cordrey.
The Clarks board now totals 10: a non-executive chairman, a senior independent director, four independent non-executive directors, two non-executive directors appointed by the Clarks family which owns the business and two executive directors.
