Pavers director Ian Paver has decided to step down from his full time role at the footwear business for personal reasons.
Paver, who was a director and buyer at the footwear company since 1986, will stay on at the family retailer as a part-time consultant for the next 12months to ensure a smooth transition in the buying department.
Stuart Paver, Ian’s brother, will remain as managing director at the company.
A spokeswoman for Pavers said it was putting together a new buying team with “specific responsibilities to ensure the continued growth of the business.”
Earlier this month Stuart Paver said the footwear chain was planning to use the 14 Barratts stores it acquired as part of a push to grow its high street presence.
The business is looking to acquire as many as 15 further stores, planning to convert them after six months into Pavers as part of an “expansion into the high street”, through which it hopes to break £100m turnover during 2015/16.
