Hallenstein Glasson has named its new CEO that will head the business, following long-time CEO Graeme Popplewell's resignation in November. The former president and managing director of Toys 'R Us Japan, Mark Goddard, is taking over the reins of the apparel company.
After dedicating 45 years of his working life to two of New Zealand's best known retail brands, Hallenstein Glasson CEO Graeme Popplewell is stepping down. Popplewell was appointed managing director of Hallensteins in 2010 and group chief executive in 2011. He will leave the company at the end of this year.
Hallenstein Glasson has announced Di Humphries as the new CEO of womenswear chain Glassons. The ins and outs of the company will no doubt be quite familiar to her, considering she was previously the managing director of Glassons and an executive director of Hallenstein Glasson.
Hallenstein Glasson has emerged from a difficult year with a half-yearly profit of $8.638 million – nearly 40 percent more than what it made this time last year.
