M&S clothing head joins Asos

City A.M. Reporter
AIM-listed fashion retailer Asos this morning confirmed the appointment of ex-Marks & Spencer executive Kate Bostock.

Bostock, former head of general merchandise at M&S, will join Asos in January as executive director for product and trading.

Bostock announced her departure from M&S in July after a period of poor trading, although she did not officially step down until 1 October.

ASOS, which targets young women looking to emulate the designer looks of celebrities, also said product director Robert Bready had resigned "to pursue fresh challenges" after seven years at the firm.
