Exclusive: Footasylum buying director steps down

Footasylum co-founder and buying director Steve Makin has stepped down from his position after seven years at the retailer.

Makin, who helped set up Footasylum in 2005, has left his role at the footwear retailer and Liverpool indie mini-chain Drome with immediate effect.

In an email seen by Drapers, which was sent out to stockists today, chief executive John Wardle said Makin had resigned from his position. Any queries which would have been dealt with by Makin will now be passed onto the relevant member of the buying team.

It is not known whether his role will be replaced.

In the email Makin said: “It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to move on from Footasylum/Drome but it is also with a real sense of achievement. Since co-founding Footasylum in 2005, I have been very fortunate to have worked with some fantastic people who I know feel the same way about the business as I do.”

Footasylum could not be reached for comment.
