According to Drapers, he has left the fashion retailer with immediate effect to pursue new opportunities.
Prior to joining River Island in 2018, Cooke worked with Arcadia Group for nearly 13 years. Whilst there his most recent role was Topman managing director, but he also previously held buying director and head of buying roles at the menswear brand.
