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.”
