David Neville steps down as co-CEO of Rag & Bone
Rag & Bone co-chief executive officer David Neville is stepping down from the company according to the American press.
Neville is parting ways with the company, but he will remain as a member of the Board of Directors and he will not be replaced. The co-chief told the media that he plans to help his wife, makeup artist Gucci Westman, launch a cosmetics line, and he aims to invest in fashion brands the same way Theory Chief Executive Andrew Rosen did for Rag & Bone in 2004.
Marcus Wainwright and Nathan Bogle co-founded Rag & Bone in 2002, and Neville joined the company in 2005. After Bogle left the company in 2006, Neville stepped up as Wainwright’s partner. Together, the duo was nominated for countless CFDA Awards, including Menswear Designer of the Year this year, and in 2010, they won the CFDA/Swarovski Award for Emerging Menswear Talent. Neville and Wainwright were named co-Chief Executive Officers in 2015.
Rag & Bone opened its first store in New York City on Christopher Street in 2008, and today it operates 22 stores in the US and one in the UK where the duo originates. The American brand is currently available in over 50 countries worldwide.
