Cath Kidston has promoted its director of global supply chain and product development, Geert Peeters, to the role of chief operating officer.

The move comes after what the home furnishings and fashion brand described as "three successful years" of managing the business's global supply chain.

Peeters' supply chain career to date spans more than 25 years, and he has previously held senior roles at the likes of Levi's, Bacardi and VF Corporation.

Commenting on his promotion, Cath Kidston CEO Kenny Wilson said: "I am very pleased to be recognising the significant contributions that Geert has made in helping Cath Kidston grow to where it is today.

"When we brought Geert in a little over three years ago, we tasked him with managing a supply chain, which spans four continents and many time zones. He has done an excellent job carrying out his responsibilities and has also demonstrated great leadership qualities."
