Clarks announced the appointments of Ben Fletcher and Jack Quinlan to senior positions within Clarks Asia Pacific and Europe, Monday.
The new appointments come after the company announced the opening of a UK manufacturing plant earlier this month.
Ben Fletcher joins as European Region Managing Director, after previously serving as the managing director of boots opticians, overseeing over 600 stores with 2.5 million customers each year.
Jack Quinlan will join the team in August as the Asia Pacific regional president, overseeing the brand’s activities in the area. Quinlan boasts more than 30 years of leadership experience in both the apparel and footwear industries. He makes the move to Clarks from a senior vice president role at Fossil Group, based in Hong Kong.
“I am delighted to welcome Jack and Ben to Clarks,” said Steve Finlan, Clarks chief commercial officer. “They have a wealth of experience and strong commercial skills which will ensure they will play important roles in the transformation and future success of Clarks.”
