Handbag and accessories brand Radley has appointed Alan Stone-Wigg to the newly-created position of chief operating officer.
Stone-Wigg, previously president of the Timex business unit based in America, will join Radley in January 2016 and will be responsible for the brand’s retail, e-commerce, wholesale and international divisions. He will report directly to Justin Stead who joined Radley as chief executive in May this year.
Prior to working at Timex, Stone-Wigg served as chief operating officer for Sequel AG, based in Switzerland, heading up all operations.
Commenting on the appointment, Stead said: “Alan and I have worked together for many years during our time at the Fossil group and we are delighted that he will be joining the Radley management team.
“His proven track record in building strong teams, commercial success at the Timex Group and his considerable international experience will be of significant benefit to us as we deliver our vision and strategy for the Radley brand.”
Stone-Wigg added: “Radley has great products that combine quality and beauty. As a distinctive London brand, it has all the ingredients to compete on the world stage. It’s recent renaissance is highly encouraging, so I am truly excited to join Justin and the Radley Team and to have the opportunity to deliver significant growth around the world for the brand.”
