Dr Martens’ CEO Kenny Wilson is stepping down from his position, and chief brand officer Ije Nwokorie will take over before the end of the financial year. Wilson and Ije will collaborate to ensure a smooth transition.

Wilson expressed his excitement about passing the baton to Ije after six years in the role. He praised Ije’s brand knowledge and passion, stating that he looks forward to closely working with him in the upcoming year.

Ije, in turn, is excited about his new role as the next CEO of Dr. Martens. He highlighted the brand’s strength, product range, and passionate culture, expressing readiness to work with Kenny during the transition.

The announcement coincides with Dr Martens’ upcoming full-year results, scheduled for release on 30th May, expected to meet predictions. However, Wilson anticipates challenges in the next fiscal year, emphasizing the need for cost efficiencies.

He emphasized the importance of reigniting demand for boots, especially in the USA, the largest market, amid a challenging FY25 outlook. The focus remains on driving cost efficiencies and investment projects for future returns, underpinned by a strong brand and product pipeline.

Notably, Dr Martens recently filed a lawsuit against Temu, a Chinese marketplace, alleging trademark infringement for using keywords like “Dr. Martens” and “Airwair” in paid Google ads to promote boots on their platform.
