“Effective immediately, Mark Brashear, chairman and CEO of Hugo Boss in the Americas, has decided to leave the company to seek new opportunities,” the company said in a statement this afternoon. “Mr. Brashear made significant contributions to the development of Hugo Boss Americas during the last six years. The Group’s management would like to thank him for his commitment and wish him all the best for his professional and personal future.”
The company added that CEO Claus Dietrich Lahrs would oversee the Americas division while until a replacement was named.
Brashear came to Hugo Boss from Nordstrom where he spent 22 years, the last seven as head of their Façonnable business in France. He started his career at Macy’s West.
