Pringle boss Mary-Adair Macaire exits

Pringle of Scotland chief executive Mary-Adair Macaire has stepped down from her role at the Scottish luxury knitwear brand after almost two and a half years at the helm.

Jean Fang, a member of the owning Fang family and former chief operating officer, took over the role at the luxury knitwear brand on February 1.

Benoit Duveger, previously director of global communications, has been appointed managing director.  He will drive the creative development of the brand and has assumed responsibility for business development for both the wholesale and retail sales divisions.

Fang said: “Benoit is an extremely driven luxury goods professional and we are delighted with his appointment. I am confident he will advance the excellent work achieved to date and to take it further.”

Pringle of Scotland was bought by S.C. Fang and sons in 2000 for £6.1m.

Macaire joined the business in September 2008 from Chanel where she was global marketing director and had previously been vice president of Chanel ready-to-wear in the US. She has left to pursue other business opportunities according to S.C.Fang.
