Supergroup goes through restructuring

The management of Supergroup, the holding company of Superdry, has gone through a restructuring - with several activities moving from its local office in Brussels to its main office in Cheltenham.

Simplified communication

Guy Torrekens, finance director, will leave the company, leaving his duties in the hands of Paula Bradshaw (Group Financial Controller) and her team at the main office. The day-to-day activities of the Finance Team in Belgium will be overlooked by Lutgarde Vermeir, Head of Finance.

 

Superdry's parent company will also centralize marketing efforts at its main office. Current Marketing Manager Mercedes De Buyst will stay on for a few more months in order to guarantee a smooth transition.

 

Anne Blancquart, Head of Retail in Brussels, will also be leaving the company, with Head of International Retail, Gail Abbott taking over her duties.

 

The goal of this restructuring is to simplify communication between Supergroup's different divisions.
