Jaeger HR director departs

Jaeger’s human resources director Liz Jewitt-Cross will leave the business on Friday to start a new consultancy.

Jewitt-Cross joined Jaeger in December 2013, having previously held the same role at Joules from 2010 to 2013. She spent three years as group human resources director at Mosaic Fashions Group from 2004 to 2007.

A Jaeger spokeswoman said: “We would like to thank Liz for her significant contribution during her time at Jaeger and wish her all the very best with her new venture.”

Christine Cross, a Fenwick non-executive director and former Next non-executive director, who has been acting as an external business advisor to Jaeger, has also left because her contract has come to an end.

It comes after Jaeger chief executive Colin Henry left in mid-September, partway through a five-year turnaround plan. director Peter Williams stepped down as chairman of Jaeger in May after just six months, citing other commitments.

Mark Aldridge, co-founder of Jaeger’s private equity owner Better Capital, left his role as director at the retailer in May. He was replaced by Better Capital chief executive Simon Pilling, who is understood to be running Jaeger on a day-to-day basis.

Of the six directors detailed in Jaeger’s return filed on Companies House in January, half have departed.

Drapers understands the company’s directors are now Pilling, chief financial officer Harminder Atwal, company secretary Richard Warwick-Saunders and Better Capital assistant director Tom Wright as a director.
