Dirk-Jan Stoppelenburg is stepping down as chief executive of Scotch & Soda to take up the role of chairman at the brand.
Stoppelenburg will replace Michael Witteveen who has served as chairman of the board for the last ten years and will remain as a non-executive director at the business.
A replacement CEO has not been announced and Stoppelenburg will remain in the role until a successor is found.
Stoppelenburg served as CEO at the Dutch label for five years in which time he implemented a successful omnichannel strategy which has seen 70% of the brand’s revenue come from direct-to-consumer channels.
For the last financial year, Scotch & Soda posted revenues of €52m (£45.9m).
Stoppelenburg has said he made the decision to spend more time with his family in Sweden.
“I am very proud of the results we have delivered together in the past years,” he said in a statement. “Scotch & Soda is a fashion brand that conquers the world step by step. We now reap the benefits of the implementation our omnichannel strategy.”
