Stefan Larsson stepped down as CEO of Ralph Lauren after little more than a year heading the American clothing powerhouse, having failed to reorganise its business. Larsson, who had been hand-picked by Ralph Lauren, disagreed with the founder on how to boost the company and tackle its plunging share value. Today’s chart shows that while Larsson’s nomination as CEO in September 2015 saw the company’s tumble slow, he wasn’t able to reverse it. The brand’s shares could head into freefall while CFO Jane Nielsen takes the helm as interim Chief Executive. In order to reverse the cycle, Lauren must quickly find a new CEO, even if he plans to maintain its long-term strategy for the brand.
