UK: Asos head of buying latest to exit
Andrews will leave the business on 11 December
Head of buying Ellen Andrews is the latest to leave online clothing retailer Asos after holding the position for four years.
A spokesperson for Asos said Andrews will leave the business on 11 December to pursue new projects.
Andrews previously worked at department store retailer House of Fraser before joining Asos seven years ago.
The news comes after Moriamo Oshodi, head of buying for trend brands, branded accessories and beauty, stepped down last month. Asos also appointed former M&S clothing boss Kate Bostock as executive director of product and trading in October.
Asos saw its full-year profits soar last month on the back of international sales growth. Profit before tax jumped 217% to GBP40m (US$63.8m) over the year, while revenue increased 37% to GBP552.8m.
