Di Humphries resigns from Glassons

Just 18 months after rejoining Hallenstein Glasson as chief executive of Kiwi fast fashion label Glassons, Di Humphries has tendered her resignation.

Hallenstein Glasson group chief executive Mark Goddard acknowledged Humphries’ move “with sincere regret”.

“Di re-joined the company in April 2016 with a specific mandate to lead a key transformational change, build an effective management team and restore profitability,” he says. “Having substantially achieved those objectives, Di has now resigned to pursue other interests and projects. On behalf of myself, the team and the board of Hallenstein Glasson’s, we wish her all the very best for her future endeavours.”

Humphries’ previous roles have included a stint as managing director of Glassons, an executive director of Hallenstein Glasson. She was with Hallenstein Glasson from 2002 to 2012.

She also has experience with Ezibuy, and was chief executive of troubled children’s clothing retailer Pumpkin Patch until mid-2015.

Wage inflation to lift, but will it pass through to retail prices?

Wage inflation is set to rise over the next few years. In part, that’s due to planned large increases in the minimum wage. However, we expect that continuing competitive pressures will limit the pass-through to retail prices, writes Satish Ranchhod.
