SpaceNK chief exec resigns

SpaceNK chief executive Judith Pilkington has left the luxury beauty retail chain.

The retailer says Pilkington has “achieved what she set out to do when she joined five years ago” in a statement. It is not known if she has another job to go to.

UK retail director Linda Campbell is assuming control of day to day operations while a replacement is sought. The chain currently has 60 stores in the UK and 13 in the US and is still run on strategic level by founder Nicky Kinnaird.

Pilkington’s departure follows that of commercial director Alison Middleton last November to run her own consultancy, AM Retail Consultants, full time.

The statement says Kinnaird will continue to “pioneer a programme of brand enhancement and expansion supported by Manzanita Capital, the Company’s long-term investor and strategic partner.”

St Luke’s currently holds the advertising account for the SpaceNK.
