Kate Bostock resigns from Asos
Online fashion retailer Asos has announced that Kate Bostock, its executive director of product and trading, has resigned after just seven months with the business.
Bostock joined Asos in January 2013 from Marks & Spencer where she headed up the general merchandise team.
In a statement, Asos said Bostock's role would be fulfilled by the existing “highly successful” retailing team and that its board was considering whether it needed to look for a successor.
Chief executive Nick Robertson said: "Kate and I have agreed that Asos is not the right platform for her talent. Of course we are disappointed that things haven't worked out and Kate leaves with our very best wishes. In the meantime, we have a very strong team in place and the business continues to fire on all cylinders."
Bostock added: "Asos is a formidable business and I have great respect for the team I have been working with: they are right at the cutting edge of young online fashion. Sadly, I've concluded that Asos isn't the right place for me. I will not regret the experience and I wish Nick and all at Asos continued success."
