Ted Baker’s non-executive director steps down

He was former CEO of both House of Fraser and German retail group Karstadt.

Ted Baker has announced the departure of Andrew Jennings as director of the company.  

Jennings didn’t seek re-election to the board at the annual general meeting on 28 July 2022.

He was former CEO of both House of Fraser and German retail group Karstadt. He has also previously worked as group president and COO of Saks Fifth Avenue.

Helena Feltham, interim chair, said: “On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Andrew for his strong leadership, passion, and commitment during his 8 years at Ted. In addition to his role as remuneration committee chair, we have hugely valued his global retail and merchant experience and the continuity he has provided to the board following the death of John Barton.” 

Jennings added: “I am thrilled to have been part of this unique British heritage brand over the latter eight years. I wish Helena Feltham, the board and the management team much success in implementing the critically important turnaround strategy over the next 18 months in line with the changing customer needs”.
