Livingbridge sells its stake in Crew Clothing Company
Livingbridge invested in Crew in 2006 and the retailer operates from over 80 stores and also sells online. Crew was founded in 1993 by Alastair Parker-Swift in the back of a windsurfing school in Salcombe, Devon. The brand offers quality smart casual wear, accessories and footwear for men and women, including a range of iconic heritage products, bearing its crossed oars logo. Alastair Parker-Swift will continue to work with Crew under its new ownership. As previously reported, only to be vociferously denied by a spokesperson for Livingbridge, CEO Louise Barnes has left the business making way for the new owner, believed to be Exquisite Clothing, to install its own management team.
