US-based Wolverine Worldwide, which also owns Merrell, Sperry and Hush Puppies, has announced job cuts at Sweaty Betty to safeguard its long-term growth. 

Sweaty Betty’s owner said the sportswear retailer will now report to its London-based international group, which handles operations outside the US.  

As a part of the transition, Wolverine will be consolidating its London office space and proposing a UK workforce reduction to better align Sweaty Betty’s cost structure to its other brands.
