FORMER BURBERRY finance director Stacey Cartwright is to become chief executive of luxury fashion chain Harvey Nichols, replacing Joseph Wan who is retiring after 21 years in the job.
Cartwright, who stepped down as Burberry’s chief financial officer after nine years last February, is credited with helping transforming Burberry into a world leading luxury brand, increasing turnover from £676m when she joined in 2004 to over £2bn in 2013.
She was also responsible for overseeing Burberry’s successful entry into new markets including China and the Middle East.
Cartwright joined Burberry from Prudential’s then-internet bank Egg. A big part of her earlier role at Burberry was to help consolidate the business systems following its growth and IPO.
“I am delighted to be joining Harvey Nichols at such an exciting time in the luxury retail market; a market which demonstrates significant potential and for which I have enormous passion. I am excited by the opportunity to further develop this world class brand both in the UK and internationally,” said Cartwright.
Cartwright joins Harvey Nichols on February 17.
