Mulberry finance director Neil Ritchie will step down after serving three years at the British luxury retailer.

Ritchie joined the company in 2016 and will remain at his role until June 30, following the completion of the year-end audit process.

He began his career as finance director for GlaxoSmithKline, and then moved to Dyson where he remained for 10 years.

Meanwhile, Mulberry recently launched a new flagship online store and an exclusive capsule collection on Alibaba’s premium platform Tmall Luxury Pavilion.

The retailer capitalised from Tmall Luxury Pavillion’s platform by gathering over 100,000 visitors to the store on opening day, and accumulating a total number of 300,000 visitors in its first week of opening.

“The board would like to express its thanks to Neil for his valuable contribution to the group over the past three years and wish him every success in his future endeavours,” Mulberry chairman Godfrey David said.

Ritchie said: “I would like to thank the board and my colleagues for their support over the past three years.

“It has been a privilege to have contributed to Mulberry’s development and the creation of its platform for International expansion.”

Mulberry is currently seeking a successor.
