Ex-Stead & Simpson boss joins Stylo board

Former Stead & Simpson chief executive David Lockyer has joined the board of foot-wear group Stylo as non-executive director.

Lockyer, who has worked in footwear for nearly 40 years and began his career at Clarks, replaces Barry Morris, who will retire at the end of the month after six years at the company.

Lockyer joins fellow footwear veteran and Stylo non-executive director David Spitz, the former managing director of Carvela and Kurt Geiger and an ex-director of Shoe Studio Group, on the Stylo board.

Stylo, which runs the Barratts, Shellys and Priceless chains, also drafted in footwear “concept creator” Richard Wharton, co-founder of footwear businesses Office, Poste and Qube, to consult at its Barratts fascia at the end of last year.

Stylo chairman and chief executive Michael Ziff said: “The board is now very strong and experienced. Now all we have to do is listen.

“Barry has made a huge contribution to the company and this has been much appreciated,” he added. “David has gained immense knowledge and experience and this will add greatly to the development of Stylo.”
