Mr Watson said: “It’s with sadness that I leave my position of chief executive at Start-Rite Shoes. My decision to resign is no reflection on this business or the people within it. I have been offered a new challenge which was too good an opportunity to turn down.
“The company and its board have shown me great support over the last three years, and I wish them all continued success in the years to come.”
The board is actively recruiting a new CEO.
