Hunter expands senior management team
Hunter has expanded its senior management team with a number of new appointments as it looks to build its brand.
Ken Pratt has become the footwear brand’s chief financial officer, joining from Signet UK where he was also CFO, while Dan Lumb has been appointed as online director, having previously worked at Reiss as director of e-commerce.
Niall Sloan has taken up the role of global design director with responsibility for development and design across all product categories. Sloan was most recently senior women’s wear designer at Burberry Prorsum.
In a final appointment, Ali Lowry has joined the company as global communications director, after having previously worked at Giorgio Armani heading up PR and marketing in the UK.
The announcement follows the arrival of a number of other high level recruits within the business during the last year including James Seuss as chief executive, Alasdhair Willis as creative director, and Fabrizio Stroppa as commercial sales director.
Commenting on the appointments, Seuss said: “I am very pleased that Hunter has been able to attract such a talented group of individuals to join our team, as we continue to build this iconic brand. Starting with Autumn/Winter 2014, we plan to unveil a new brand and product direction, now that our senior management team is in place.”
