Steve Fowler, MD of market leading sock brand Bridgedale, is to leave his full time role at the end of December. Fowler, who quit footwear brand Brasher to take on the role six years ago, will continue to act as a consultant to the business. In the meantime, Bridgedale owners the Bollin Group has announced that Fowler will be succeeded by Mark Brennan, who is returning to the company he left a year ago to, after it divested itself of the Victorinox Travel Products business. Fowler said: “My six years at Bridgedale has seen the brand strength continue to develop both at home and overseas, so with a great team in place, two record years, as well as the launch of Bridgedale North America behind me, and following my heart surgery in 2015 I feel it is time to make way for the next generation to step up and be counted.”
