All Saints CEO Steps Down
The British fashion retailer All Saints is on the prowl for a new chief executive officer. Out of the blue, Stephen Craig abruptly stepped down Monday. “The current leadership structure is untenable given the lack of clarity of roles between the chairman, Kevin Stanford, and me and, as such, I now believe it is the right time for me to explore other more entrepreneurial opportunities,” he said.
Craig, who helped find new majority investors earlier this year after All Saints’ main backer, the Icelandic bank Kaupthing, collapsed, said he had no choice but to resign his post. Lyndon Lea, a co-founder of Lion Capital, which purchased All Saints along with Goode Partners, said it was a sad day for him. “I get along with them both. But it was like one of those marriages that ends after so much time spent in the trenches,” he said in a telephone interview. “They have not been happy working together since the sale.”
