Away CEO Exits Barely A Year In

After a tumultuous entrance to the brand at the beginning of 2020, Away CEO Stuart Haselden is now leaving the DTC luggage brand in February “to pursue another opportunity,” according to a press release. He will have been there 13 months total and just four months as the sole CEO. Haselden arrived at Away in January last year, after an investigation by The Verge into Away’s corporate culture. After a confusing set of announcements from Away, he operated as co-CEO with co-founder Steph Korey until October, when Korey officially stepped down. Haselden will maintain his board seat, according to the release, “where he will continue to be involved in helping steer the business.” Co-founder Jen Rubio will take over as interim CEO while the brand looks for a replacement.
