America's L Brands, Inc., which owns Victoria's Secret, has announced that Leslie H. Wexner, Chairman and CEO of L Brands, will assume leadership of Victoria's Secret. He takes over from CEO Sharen Jester Turney who has decided to resign, L Brands said in a press release.

Turney has been with the company for nearly 16 years, joining as President and CEO of Victoria's Secret Direct in 2000 and assuming responsibility for the brand as CEO in 2006. Turney will continue to serve as an advisor to the business.

“We are very grateful to Sharen for her leadership and all that she has accomplished; Victoria's Secret sales have increased more than 70 per cent to $7.7 billion and profit has increased substantially during her nine years as CEO. While she will be missed, we support her in her choice and wish her well,” said Wexner. “We have strong confidence in the strength of the brand and our growth opportunities, and I look forward to taking on a more active role and working with the talented leadership team at Victoria's Secret.”

Turney said, “After 16 years and a record fourth quarter at Victoria's Secret, I have decided to prioritize my family and my personal life and consider what's next for me professionally. My years with Victoria's Secret have been the most exciting and rewarding years of my career. I leave the Victoria's Secret business well-positioned for the next chapter of growth … a strong brand with great momentum. I take great satisfaction and pride in what our team has accomplished, including tremendous growth and the development of a world-class team.” (SH)
