CEO of fashion house Ted Baker quits over workplace claims

By The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) — The CEO of fashion retailer Ted Baker has resigned after allegations that he enforced a "hugging" culture at the company.

Ray Kelvin had been forced to take a leave of absence last year following the allegations of harassment. Kelvin denies the allegation.

Executive Chairman David Bernstein said Monday that "in light of the allegations made against him, Ray has decided that it is in the best interests of the company for him to resign so that the business can move forward under new leadership."

George Salmon, an equity analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown, says that Kelvin was crucial to building the company up from a single shirt ship in Glasgow into a 1 billion pound-plus global company.

But he says "a rocky few months has seen that premium market value disappear."
