Burberry in 2014
In February 2014, Burberry's chief executive officer Angela Ahrendts is preparing to hand the reins of the English luxury fashion company to chief creative officer Christopher Bailey. Under their partnership, in place since 2006, Burberry's revenues have tripled to more than two billion English pounds, and operating profits have more than doubled. Ahrendts has led Burberry to become a brand that once again stands for luxury and that has a strong global and digital footprint. Yet, the leadership change is met with skepticism. Is Burberry's current strategy also the right one for the future, and can Bailey continue Burberry's transformation?
