Anthropologie CEO

Anthropologie chief executive David McCreight is set to leave the fashion retailer at the end of this month.

Urban Outfitters Inc, the parent company of the US-based retailer, did not provide a reason for why McCreight was stepping down.

It added that Anthropologie group president for apparel and accessories Hillary Super will step into the role, alongside  Andrew Carnie, Anthropologie group president for home, garden and international.

“We thank David for his six years of service to the company during which time the Anthropologie group opened 60 stores and grew revenue by over 35 per cent,” Urban Outfitters Inc chief executive Richard Hayne said.

“Both Hillary and Andrew are strong leaders and excellent merchants with a solid understanding of the Anthropologie customer.

“Anthropologie Group’s current business is particularly robust, and we are excited about both the near and longer-term opportunities for growth under their leadership.”

Anthropologie trades from 10 stores in the UK across London, Leeds, Guildford and Edinburgh, as well as online.
