Louise Barnes has reduced her duties as chairman of Joules to devote more time to Fenn Wright Manson, which she also chairs.
Barnes joined lifestyle retailer Joules in January, three months after becoming executive chairman of mainstream womenswear brand Fenn Wright Manson.
Joules founder and chief executive Tom Joule said Barnes had achieved the main objectives he had drafted her in to oversee, which was primarily to restructure the board. She remains in the post, although she will devote fewer days a month to the retailer. It is unclear how much longer she will stay involved with the business.
Barnes does not have an investment in Joules but does have equity in Fenn Wright Manson, which is also understood to have motivated the changes to her role.
Joules recently reported a 27% increase in like-for-like sales for the year to the end of April.
