Wholesale director quits Kurt Geiger

Andrew Lee, wholesale, franchise and licensing director at Kurt Geiger, has resigned from the business.

Lee, who has been in the role six years and prior to that was interim merchandising director at the premium footwear retailer for a year, tendered his resignation at the start of the month, documents filed at Companies House show.

It is not known what his next move will be, or whether Kurt Geiger plans to replace him.

His resignation comes as the business readies itself for a significant transition, after last week’s announcement that parent company Jones Group had been sold to private equity firm Sycamore Partners for £733m.

The US business, which also owned retailers such as Nine West and footwear brand Carvela, bought Kurt Geiger from Graphite Capital in June 2011 for £215m.  

Lee joined the business in 2006. Before that he worked in business development at Sainsbury’s and before that worked as a senior manager at Marks & Spencer.
