Marks & Spencer appoints new online clothing head
Marks & Spencer has hired Stephen Langford to head up its online clothing business.
Due to take up his ecommerce director position in just over a week’s time, Langford will be responsible for driving the transformation of the retailer’s ecommerce business and “turbo-charging” its website.
He will report to Richard Price who has recently been appointed as M&S’s clothing and home managing director. Price will join the business in July.
Langford is currently George at Asda’s commercial vice president and previously worked with M&S for five years until 2011.
Steve Rowe, M&S chief executive, said: “Stephen knows the M&S business, having worked as our first multichannel merchandising manager in 2006, and since then has broadened his experience of transformation at Tesco and latterly as vice-president at George. During his time at George, he has led a significant change programme; growing market share and brand equity as well as lowering the cost base of the business.”
