Mille Monferin is leaving his job as CEO of Edwin Europe (edwin.co.jp.com). He exits from the Japanese denim brand at the end of this month. For more than three years Monferin led and repositioned the brand from its EU headquarters in Basel, Switzerland. His successor is Edwin Feah, the major investor of the brand’s European licence.

Monferin, who has more than 20 years of experience in the denim business, said of his departure: "New directions are requested from Edwin Faeh, known from Carhartt, the financing body of the Edwin Europe. These are both product and structure changes. I do not feel comfortable in this new direction of my investor. Therefore I have decided to leave to company by the end of April."
