Ledbury hires chief marketing, financial officers
Richmond-based shirtmaker Ledbury announced Thursday it has hired two C-suite positions. Bill Eyre started in mid-April as chief marketing officer, and Jennifer Villarreal will come onboard June 1 as chief financial officer.
“Ledbury has dramatically evolved in the last year, as we’ve added a wholesale business, launched a robust catalog strategy and opened a new retail location in Washington, DC – all while our e-commerce business has continued to grow…” Ledbury co-founder and CEO, Paul Trible, said in a statement.
Eyre comes to Ledbury from outdoor retailer Orvis, where he had nearly 20 years experience as the director of branding and corporate marketing and the director of advertising.
In his new role at Ledbury, he will lead marketing strategies across all channels and manage an in-house creative and marketing team of seven people.
Villarreal was most recently the vice president of finance and operations at Turnbull and Asser, the 130-year-old British luxury shirtmaker. She managed the company’s retail, wholesale and e-commerce businesses. Her previous experience includes CFO at fashion label Simon Spurr and vice president of finance and operations at Brooklyn Industries.
Ledbury is a menswear brand best known for dress and casual shirts. Founded in 2009, Ledbury now employs 34 people and has stores in Richmond and Washington, D.C.
