The former Adidas chief sales officer joined the menswear brand in March 2018.

He will be replaced by Luke Kingsnorth, who is currently serving as president of the North American business, according to Retail Gazette.

The reason for Stanier’s departure was not immediately clear on Thursday morning, but he is believed to be planning his return to German to act as a co-investor in data analytics company Rebo.

Charles Tyrwhitt’s new CEO Luke Kingsnorth has been with the company since 2010. He was first hired as e-commerce director before rising to e-commerce and marketing director in 2012. Over the last three years, he has been focused on establishing the brand’s first overseas officer in New York and managing all aspects of the label’s North American business.

Prior to that, Kingsnorth was senior manager at John Lewis Direct, and held several ecommerce and marketing roles at companies including Eurostar, BSkyB and Skandia Life & Manpower.
