Bering has ‘ceased co-operation’ with UK country manager Richard Hill with company owner and president Lars Skjonnemann overseeing national operations for the remainder of 2014.
Skjonnemann will work closely with Bering’s UK sales manager Ian Latham and area sales manager Stephen Todd in managing the UK business until the end of the year. Strategic decisions will then be made in January 2015 with regard to the position Hill leaves vacant.
Speaking to WatchPro.com, Skjonnemann said: “We have a great team in the UK, including Ian and Stephen. We’ve had a great start in the UK but for the last half year the growth was not there. Now I would like to make sure the next steps for Bering are the right steps.”
Danish watch and jewellery brand Bering arrived in the UK in 2011 quickly signing up 250 retail partners.
Hill had previously worked at Bristol-based jewellery distributor Fable Jewels as well as Fossil Group and its Danish lifestyle brand Skagen.
