Value accessories retailer Claire's Stores has named Richard Flint as President of Europe where he’ll be focusing on growth across channels. Flint will report to Claire's CEO Ryan Vero.
He has over two decades of experience in retail and a “proven track record in key leadership roles, along with his strategic approach to growing and evolving businesses”.
The company said he’ll “be integral as Claire's looks to further expand the brand's international footprint throughout Europe”.
He’ll aim to “amplify” its presence through a “strong growth pipeline and developing the international supply chain to optimise the flow of products to customers through Claire's channels, with an added emphasis on its growing concessions business”.
He most recently served as Chief Growth Officer and Executive Board Member at HEMA, “where he delivered significant growth through his digital and multichannel leadership and vision”.
Prior to this, Flint served as the VP, Direct-to-Consumer at Nike, leading the company's business in Greater China, including the retail turnaround of its brand fleet, and “dramatically increasing e-commerce performance across platforms and owned digital properties”.
"Richard brings a wealth of experience, an expert knowledge of the market and a drive for optimising growth, which will be instrumental to our brand positioning and long-term success as a global fashion brand that inspires self-expression,” said Vero.
