Hugo Boss

CEO Mark Langer will leave the managing board of Hugo Boss AG on Sept. 30, as agreed upon by mutual agreement with the company.

In light of the current challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Langer will act as a consultant after that and support the company until the end of the year. The company’s supervisory board will immediately focus on the search for a successor.

Langer had been with the company for 18 years and was chief financial officer (CFO) before being named CEO in 2016.



Mogu Inc., a youth-oriented online fashion and lifestyle destination in China, announced that its CFO, Helen Ting Wu, resigned from her position at the company due to personal reasons, effective March 31.

Mogu said Wu’s resignation did not result from any disagreement with the company, adding that its financial department and investor relations function will continue operating normally after her departure.
