After working with the Bestseller Group for 27 years, Morten Mortensen, brand director for Jack & Jones and Selected, is leaving the company to pursue new ideas.
“Morten has been a large part of Bestseller for more than 27 years, where he has been responsible for our men’s wear department since the start-up of Jack & Jones. Since then, we have seen Selected emerge and together, these two businesses make up a considerable share of our company and our results”, said Anders Holch Povlsen, CEO and owner of the Bestseller Group.
No specification on a successor has been made, but a corporate statement said “the plan is for this team to take over where Morten left”.
Mortensen said: “Bestseller has been a big part of my life so far, but I feel it is time to try something else. I have no concrete plans for the future, but I have thousands of ideas, and I look very much forward to be spending more time with my family.”
