British multinational retailer Debenhams is creating three new business units including fashion & home, beauty & beauty services and foods & events. The Group is going through a period of rapid transformation to deliver its new strategy— Debenhams Redesigned. Each of these business units will be led by a member of the executive committee.

The executive committee will consist of the chief executive officer Sergio Bucher, and the chief financial officer Matt Smith along with Ross Clemmow (retail director), Richard Cristofoli (marketing director), David Smith (international director), Angela Morrison (technology and supply chain director) and Sally Hyndman (human resources director). 

A new executive committee member responsible for fashion and home is expected to be appointed in due course. In the interim period, responsibility for this division will be taken by the CEO. "I would like to thank Suzanne Harlow, personally for her support since my arrival at Debenhams in October last year. She has done an excellent job since she joined Debenhams in 1994 and over the last eight years as Group trading director has driven growth in categories such as beauty, accessories, food and gift. We have strengthened the management team over the last 12 months and now have a structure in place to support our ambition to become a leader in social shopping," said Bucher.

Harlow will step down from the board on October 20, 2017.

"On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Harlow for her significant contribution to Debenhams over the last 23 years. She has proved herself a consummate professional and I personally would like to thank her particularly for her help and support to the business through the period of leadership transition. We wish her every success in the future," Sir Ian Cheshire, chairman, said.

Debenhams trades from 253 stores across 27 countries. Debenhams gives its customers around the world a unique, differentiated and exclusive mix of own brands, international brands and concessions. (RR)
