Ben Sherman has announced the departure of CEO, Pan Philippou. Philippou headed the brand for almost three years before leaving at his own request earlier this week.

Thomas Chubb, director of Oxford Industries, holding company of Ben Sherman, takes on his position until a successor will be found. Chubb comments:

"After leading Ben Sherman through a time of significant change over the past couple of years, Pan Philippou has decided to move on.  I am very grateful to Pan for his leadership of Ben Sherman including his efforts in nurturing our iconic brand and strengthening our team of highly capable people. I would like to thank Pan and wish him all the best for the future."

Prior to joining Ben Sherman in 2010, Pan Philippou had previously held the position of CEO at both WTD and Diesel UK.
