Watch information and e-tail site Hodinkee has named Jeffery Fowler (pictured), a former executive at Farfetch, its new CEO.
He succeeds Toby Bateman, who was appointed CEO in December 2020 and will continue in an advisory role at the company.
In a statement Bateman said, “Whilst I remain based in the United Kingdom, trans-Atlantic travel requirements grow as the business grows, therefore I am stepping down from my role to focus on my responsibilities as a father and to my family.”
Fowler was most recently president, Americas, for Farfetch, as well as a member of that site’s executive team.
Before Farfetch, Fowler worked for a wide variety of companies, including Louis Vuitton, TAG Heuer, Cartier, and Tesla.
In 2017, Fowler was elected to the board of directors of the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) Couture Council. He has served as its vice chairman since 2019. He was also selected by the editors of Women’s Wear Daily for its inaugural “40 Under 40” executives impacting the global fashion industry.
