TM Lewin is understood to be searching for a new ecommerce chief after hiring former N Brown boss Alan White as its new chairman to spearhead a major online expansion.
White succeeds Tony Campbell, who left privately-owned upmarket shirt-maker in the summer just before last month’s £100m management buyout, backed by an affiliate of Bain Capital. He had been non-exec chairman for nine years.
Ecommerce director Andrew Mossman, who had been with the company a decade, and creative director John Francomb, who had been with the firm 35 years, have also exited, although the company has given no reason their departures.
The company does not currently have a direct marketing agency of record; it has used both Kitcatt Nohr and Wunderman in the past.
White stepped down from N Brown in 2013 after 25 years. He told Retail Week: “I was a customer of TM Lewin in the days when I wore a shirt and tie every day, and I’m keen to work with a business with ambitious growth plans in the multichannel space.”
TM Lewin has around 95 stores in the UK and Australia, plus around 90 franchise stores in the Middle East, Africa, India and southeast Asia. In its last full-year it reported a pre-tax profit of £636,000, up from a loss of £1.4m the previous year.
