Mother, baby and children's goods retailer Mothercare has announced two management appointments as it looks to focus on its global operations.
Philippe Dayraud, who has been named global product and sourcing director, joins Mothercare from French clothing retailer Pimkie. Dayraud previously worked at German mail order firm Otto Group.
Meanwhile, Jude Bridge has been appointed global brand and marketing director and will take up her position in December. She has previously worked at children's charity Save the Children UK and retailer Marks & Spencer.
Mothercare saw its first-quarter sales fall 4.4% in July on the back of weaker trading in the UK. Total UK sales for the 15 weeks ended 14 July fell 10.2% and UK like-for-like sales declined 6.7%.
