Ben Sherman chief executive Pan Philippou has left the men’s young fashion brand.
Philippou left the business earlier this week after almost three years at the label. A replacement for his role is yet to be announced and it is not known if Philippou has a new position to go to.
During his time at Ben Sherman Philippou led a reinvention of the Ben Sherman brand whilst also directing the revival of its stores. He also spearheaded the launch of its higher-priced Plectrum line and the company’s first unbranded concept store on Portobello Road, London.
Before joining Ben Sherman in January 2010 Philippou was the head of brand house WDT and ex-head of Diesel UK.
Tom Chubb, president of Oxford Industries, Ben Sherman’s parent company, said: “After leading Ben Sherman through a time of significant change over the past couple of years, Pan Philippou has decided to move on. I am very grateful to Pan for his leadership of Ben Sherman including his efforts in nurturing our iconic brand and strengthening our team of highly capable people. I would like to thank Pan and wish him all the best for the future. “
Ben Sherman will begin the search for a new chief executive, but in the interim Tom Chubb will assume the role of acting chief executive officer.
Philippou could not be reached for comment.
