ASOS’s human resources director Michelle Emmerson has stepped down, in the latest high profile departure at the online fashion giant.

Her departure comes less than a week after Kate Bostock, the former head of clothing at Marks & Spencer, announced that she was to leave the company just seven months into the job.

Asos has hired over 200 people over the last year but the news of a second senior exit is likely to fuel some concern of management unrest at the group.

Emmerson joined Asos in 2011 as people and services director and sat on the online firm’s senior executive board.

She previously worked for the BBC Worldwide as HR director and started her career in the music industry working for EMI in various finance roles before moving into human resources.

Asos declined to comment.
