Dr Martens CEO exits

The chief executive of Dr Martens, Steve Murray, is leaving the business after three years in the role.

The footwear brand is looking for a new chief executive and, in the interim, chairman Paul Mason – the former boss of Asda and Matalan – will take on the position.

Murray joined the footwear firm in October 2014 from Ugg parent company Deckers, where he was president of Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Before that he was brand president at Urban Outfitters from 2010 until 2011 and worked at VF Corporation for more than a decade.

Murray said: ”I am proud of what we have achieved during the three years I have been CEO, and would like to thank all of our people for their commitment and dedication. With the foundations in place, I am sure Dr. Martens will continue to grow both in the UK and internationally.”

Mason, added: “Steve has played an important role in developing Dr. Martens’ strategy and repositioning the business for growth. He leaves the business in a very strong position. We have a talented and experienced leadership team in place and the business is delivering on its ambitious strategy. As Dr. Martens enters the next phase of its history, it is trading well and is ideally placed to accelerate its growth still further in the years ahead.”
