The finance director of footwear retailer Schuh is stepping down after 22 years with the brand.
Mark Crutchley will be replaced with the head of finance and HR David Gillan-Reid, who has been with Schuh for 18 years – with his first role in the business as a finance manager.
Meanwhile, Crutchley’s responsibility for ecommerce will be taken over by Sean McKee, head of ecommerce and customer services.
Crutchley led the retailer through two management buy-outs and its sale to US firm Genesco in 2011.
In addition, during his directorship Schuh 10 stores to 125 and turnover grew from £19 million to £267 million.
“When we sold Schuh, it was always my intention to step down after overseeing our transition from a private company to being part of a public global footwear retailer,” Crutchley said.
“I am delighted that we have now reached that stage and I can leave the company safe in the knowledge that there is an exceptional team of people who will take the business forward.”
