Away CEO Stuart Haselden is stepping down
Away CEO Stuart Haselden will step down in February, according to a company press release. The luggage brand’s president and co-founder, Jen Rubio, will take over as interim chief executive until Away finds a permanent replacement. The news was first reported by Axios.
Haselden, a former Lululemon executive, joined the company in the wake of a Verge investigation, which found that former employees were critical of then-CEO Steph Korey’s management style. Korey stepped down shortly after this investigation, then retook her post and threatened to sue The Verge for defamation. Haselden and Korey served as co-CEOs until Korey resigned again in October.
