Gracia Amico joined Hobbs in September 2012

UK clothing retailer Hobbs has confirmed the departure of Gracia Amico, its director of e-commerce.

Amico has left Hobbs just 13 months after joining the company. Before taking up the role in September 2012, she was Topman online executive responsible for the firm's global e-commerce business, during which time she launched three international websites. Prior to that, Amico worked at luxury goods firm Burberry and set up her own web-based businesses.

A spokesperson for Hobbs told just-style it will be recruiting "in the medium term". In the interim, her role will be filled by Clare Dobbie, marketing and e-commerce director. No reason was given for her departure.

Last month, Hobbs appointed former New Look chief, Phil Wrigley, as its chairman.
