Shena MacDonald, Jacques Vert’s managing director for womenswear, has resigned from the business with immediate effect.
Jacques Vert chief executive Paul Allen said: “Shena has been with us for almost five years. The shape of the Group has been transformed within that time and now consists of four key brands that are well positioned for further development. Shena has played an important part in achieving this and she leaves in place very capable operational management and creative design teams.”
Jacques Vert, which owns the Jacques Vert, Windsmoor, Planet and Precis brands, has reported difficult trading in recent months.
Like-for-like sales at the group fell 5.4% in the 11 weeks beginning October 25. Sales fell 5.8% to £54.9 million for the 26 week period and pre-tax profit fell from £3m to £1.1m over the six months.
