Former Next exec Angelides A&F CEO candidate
Abercrombie confirmed Angelides is one of three candidates
Former Next group product director Christos Angelides is one of three candidates in the running for the role of chief executive of US teen apparel retailer Abercrombie & Fitch.
A spokesperson for Abercrombie confirmed Angelides, who joined the company in October, is one of three "possible candidates". The other two include COO Jonathan Ramsden, and Hollister brand president Fran Horowitz.
Angelides previously served as group product director at Next, where he had a 28-year career.
He is now a member of the office of the chairman recently established by Abercrombie & Fitch to oversee operations until a new CEO is appointed, following the sudden departure of Michael Jeffries earlier this week.
The firm said it has commenced a search for a successor and said it would consider both internal and external candidates.
The spokesperson said the successful candidate who will be "threading the needle", needs to be strategic on where to place its bets and where to place its capital.
