Boden CEO resigns
Jill Easterbrook who has held the CEO role at Boden since the start of 2017 has announced plans to pursue non-executive directorships. Currently also a non-executive director for Auto Trader UK, Easterbrook had held the managing director role for clothing at Tesco prior to joining Boden. Plans at the fashion business when Easterbrook exits at the end of the year are that Boden CFO Paul O’Leary will become chief operating officer with Julian Granville continuing as executive chairman. Johnnie Boden commented: “Jill has contributed a huge amount to Boden. She has helped us to grow up. She has been instrumental in building Boden for the future and driving our ambition as an international, digital first, multichannel business.
“Over the last three years, we have invested in new channels, new systems, and our people. I am very sad that Jill is leaving but wish her every success in the future. The entire board joins me in thanking Jill for her commitment to Boden and for all that she has achieved.”
