Blog: Topshop to share out Fenn’s boots?
Joe Ayling | 6 August 2007
Topshop is widely expected to announce the departure of its managing director Karyn Fenn this week.
The UK retailer, which lost the services of fashion director Jane Shepherdson less than a year ago, is moving into a new era of high profile celebrity ranges and a planned US launch.
But while Sir Philip Green can be pleased that his fashion house is getting bigger, he also needs to keep a keen eye on its foundations. Fenn has spent 19 years at the company.
When Sheperdson left it was down to Mary Homer and Fenn to fill in her boots. Now it is rumored that Homer and Green are going to take over Fenn’s responsibilities – giving owner Green more influence still.
The Arcadia Group is keeping hush about Fenn’s departure for the moment, and one wonders whether it is also taking a little time out to decide whether to fill Fenn’s boots or share them out.
