Victor Herrero, a former chief executive of Guess, and Stephen Bolton, a former top executive of Unilever and Diageo, joined the board of directors of Clarks earlier this month as non-executive directors. Another new manager with experience in real estate and equity investment, Peter Clark, joined the board last November. The board, which is still chaired by Tom O'Neill, picked Giorgio Presca as the company's new CEO a few weeks ago.
