Steve Murray has been designated to succeed David Suddens as the chief executive of Dr. Martens at the end of this year. Suddens, who has led the company for 12 years, will act as non-executive chairman. Murray has lately been running Deckers Outdoor's operations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. He worked previously at Vans and its present parent company, VF Corporation. Dr. Martens, which changed ownership a few months ago, will also have a new chief financial officer, Henrik Holmark, who has been doing a similar job at Pandora, the Danish jeweler.
