M&S names new womenswear director
Marks & Spencer has promoted Maddy Evans to director of womenswear as Jill Stanton is to retire.
Stanton, who has been at M&S since 2018 will step down in July.
Evans was recruited by Stanton in 2019 and is currently head of buying for womenswear and was previously fashion director at Topshop.
She will lead womenswear while menswear director Wes Taylor will take on the remit of kidswear and home director Heidi Woodhouse will be responsible for beauty.
Evans is said to have already made a big impact in terms of changing customer perceptions on the retailer’s womenswear department and in terms of what value for money means with a focus on both quality and style.
In her new role, Evans is expected to focus solely on womenswear as a key business area in her new position and will work alongside the other category directors to shape the product offering for the future and get back to sustainable growth.
