(Reuters: Ralph Lauren Corp. (NYSE:) stated Wednesday that Howard Smith, its chief commercial officer, would resign following an investigation into whether he was in violation of the code.

A request to get more information on violations was not answered by the company. Smith didn’t respond immediately to a request for comments.

Smith is a twenty-year retail veteran. He assumed his current role in 2019, and was responsible to oversee the company’s retail channels, and its “go-tomarket” strategy.

Effective April 2, his resignation will take effect
