Claire Chambers Resigns As CEO of Journelle

(Filed Under wholesale Lingerie News). Claire Chambers has resigned as the CEO of Journelle, the lingerie retailer she founded in 2007 according to several sources in the company and industry.

In response to requests for comments from Chambers and other Journelle executives, Allison Beale at the company sent an email to BODY that read: “Thank you for reaching out. At this time we have no comment regarding the transition.”

In December, 2012 Triumph purchased a majority share (51% according to one inside source) of the retailer, which at the time was operating three multi-brand shops in New York. Chambers continued as CEO and a shareholder.

Today there are four Manhattan locations: the flagship store in Union Square as well as one each on the East Side and in Soho, and an “Atelier” in Chelsea. A 1,137 square foot shop at 1725 N. Damen Avenue in Wicker Park, IL is due to open shortly.

In the summer of 2013 Triumph, which operates over 2000 retail stores around the world, opened two Triumph-named stores on Long Island and stated in a press release, “This is a new phase in their path of international expansion.” But, to date, no other lingerie shops bearing the company name have been opened here.
