Clarks has confirmed the departure of its UK head of sales Victoria Frayne and Ireland head of sales Mark O’Driscoll.

Frayne, who was in her role since 2016 worked at Clarks while O’Driscoll was head of sales for Ireland since 2005.

Sophie Flinder-Price hired to take on the role of head of sales UK and Ireland.

She joins from Portas Agency where she was commercial director, but prior to that she held senior roles at Ted Baker for four years.

A Clarks spokesperson said: “In September, we announced some changes to the structure of our European wholesale business.

“The changes will support our strategy and help deliver a first class experience for our customers by enabling us to focus more on the different segments within the wholesale markets such as independents, key accounts, and pureplay accounts. We have recruited new knowledge and expertise to support this approach.

“Mark and Victoria made the decision to leave the business and we are very grateful for all they contributed to the success of Clarks.”
