The big Indian Tata group has reportedly acquired a 10 percent stake in Move On, the new Portuguese shoe brand introduced by the former European licensees of Aerosoles, with an option to raise its stake to 51 percent. Move On continues to make private label for Marks & Spencer, but apparently more in India than in Portugal. Furthermore, to obtain more know-how in the shoe sector, Tata has reportedly also taken a 76 percent stake in Bachi Shoes of India. Liam Donelly, a former official of Clarks who has already worked with Indian companies, is the new general manager of Move On, but he would not comment on the reports at this stage. The former chief executive of Investvar, Artur Duarte, is said to be involved in the operation as a consultant for product development and sales.
