Egan has led the British footwear company for almost a decade after being appointed as executive officer in 2008 following the acquisition of the Shoe Studio Group, where he was COO for eight years. He began his career at luxury fashion house Bally, where he worked for 15 years.

Dune London executive chairman Daniel Rubin praised Egan for his contribution to the group. “He played a major role in the acquisition of Shoe Studio in 2009, which trebled the size of the business, and since then has expertly guided the business through major growth, both in the UK and internationally, during a period of major change both for The Dune Group and the retail sector generally.”

At the end of August, James Cox will take over as chief executive officer of Dune. Cox was promoted in 2013 from Finance Director to COO, and has been responsible for providing the Dune Group with first class operating systems as well as ensuring that it has a strong financial base.
