ASB MAGAZINE: Jevon Le-Roux has exited SurfStitch after just 11 months in the role of Managing Director. In an internal announcement to staff, Alceon Group Managing Director Richard Facioni said that after commuting from Sydney on a weekly basis, Jevon felt the role was taking ‘too much of a toll on his family and his personal life’. Le-Roux joined SurfStitch in March 2019 after two years as the Divisional Director at Gloria Jeans Coffee.
There was no outgoing statement from Jevon Le-Roux and the decision is effective immediately. Former SurfStitch Managing Director, Justin Hillberg has agreed to step back into the role of Managing Director,
Mr. Facioni said this is a ‘critical time’ for SurfStitch. “Justin was the SurfStitch Managing Director for a number of years before moving into a Group Operations role within the Alquemie Group (the retail portfolio at Alceon). With the recent sale of Ezibuy to Mosaic Brands, Justin now has the capacity to step back into the SurfStitch Managing Director role.”
