Charles Tyrwhitt, a British clothing retailer, has poached Michael Stanier away from Adidas as its new chief executive. Stanier was placed in charge of consumer-direct operations as “head of concept to consumer” at Adidas in 2013. He had joined Adidas in 2009 as chief retail officer. Before that, he worked at Timberland, Marks & Spencer and Gap. Adidas says that Stanier already left the group in the course of 2017 and that he has not been directly replaced.
