British Handbag Label Radley Gets a New Chief Executive

Posted on: Apr 28

There's a new top dog at British accessories house, Radley. Sven Gaede, formerly of Net-A-Porter, will be at the brand’s chief executive from May 4. He takes over from retiring chief executive Roger Best.

He's already got a fan in the company's chairman, Paul Mason.

"I am confident that he has the right skills and relevant experience to build on the success of the Radley brand both in the UK and internationally," Mr. Mason said in a statement.

Mr. Gaede is also optimistic about his new role.

"There is a strong management team already in place and we have an exciting opportunity to develop Radley into a truly international brand," he said.

Bucking the current economic trend, Radley has increased its sales by a record 10% in the last year. The handbag favorite has nine stores in the United Kingdom. It's also stocked by other British retailers including John Lewis and Debenhams.
