Monsoon Accessorize appoints George at Asda's Kevin Rusling to international role
Monsoon Accessorize has appointed George at Asda executive Kevin Rusling as its new international director.
Rusling, who has worked with Asda since 2008, was appointed as director of international for the George clothing brand in March 2012 with responsibility for overseas expansion. Prior to Asda, Rusling worked at Marks & Spencer and Sainsbury’s.
Commenting on the appointment Monsoon Accessorize founder Peter Simon said: "Kevin’s expertise lies in delivering a strategic vision across an international business portfolio."
He added: "Kevin will take responsibility for the delivery of the International strategy, including the assessment and prioritisation of international expansion and the review and development of subsidiary markets."
The announcement follows news yesterday that Monsoon Accessorize intends to appoint an examiner for its business in Ireland where it has 20 stores. The retailer said the move was "unavoidable" after the failure negotiations with landlords to reduce lease costs.
