Ted Baker come­back

- Ted Baker · Jean de La Fontaine

THE for­mer chief ex­ec­u­tive of Ted Baker will once again be rep­re­sented in the board­room 18 months after he re­signed over a ‘ forced hug­ging’ scan­dal.

Ray Kelvin has signed a ‘ re­la­tion­ship agree­ment’ al­low­ing him to nom­i­nate a di­rec­tor to the board of the brand he founded in 1988.

He will not re­turn to the lux­ury cloth­ing firm’s of­fices or be in­volved in day-to-day de­ci­sions. He has nom­i­nated Colin La Fon­taine Jack­son, a so­lic­i­tor and cor­po­rate fi­nance ex­pert, to sit on the board on his be­half.

Boss Rachel os­borne is try­ing to re­store the brand’s rep­u­ta­tion after Kelvin was ac­cused of work­place mis­con­duct. He de­nied the al­le­ga­tions but re­signed in March last year.
