Ted Baker's Browne quits

Lifestyle retailer Ted Baker’s second in command, global retail director Chris Browne, is reported to have left the business after 29 years.

Browne is said to have resigned from the company yesterday and is currently on gardening leave. He has been at Ted Baker since it was in 1988. During his time at the business Browne is said to have had a tense relationship with chief executive Ray Kelvin and as such the departure, as reported by Retail Week, is not unexpected.

In June, Ted Baker announced sales had increased 14.3% for the 19 weeks to 10 June 2017, and the company is expecting to achieve high single-digit growth on a constant-currency basis for the full year.

Ted Baker declined to comment.
