The Board has every confidence that he will successfully lead Esprit into the next phase of growth and look forward to working with him to achieve that goal.”

Kristiansen said, “Esprit is a strong, global brand at an exciting juncture, and I will focus on leveraging the company’s enormous potential to deliver long-term shareholder value. Our objective will be to recapture market share and ultimately return the company to growth.”

Anders Kristiansen is currently an industrial advisor for a global private equity fund, Permira. He was previously the chief executive officer and director of New Look, a global fast fashion apparel company based in London, from January 2013 to September 2017.
