Julie Brown, who serves as Burberry’s chief operating officer and chief financial officer, is leaving the British fashion house on April 1.

    Burberry announced on Friday that she had informed the company that she was resigning “at the end of the company’s current financial year on April 1, 2023”. She is leaving Burberry after six years to “take an opportunity outside of the luxury industry”.

    “Julie has played a key role in positioning Burberry for growth, supported by a highly qualified team,” said Burberry Managing Director Jonathan Akeroyd. “I would like to personally thank her for the support she has given me since I joined six months ago. I look forward to building on the strong foundation we have to realize Burberry’s full potential.”

    Burberry is already looking for a successor to Brown. More information will be announced in due course, the statement said.
