Marks & Spencer veteran Andrew Skinner is leaving the retailer after almost three decades.
Skinner, Marks & Spencer’s general merchandise merchandising director, has decided to seek new opportunities outside the business.
Sacha Berendji, who has been M&S chief executive Marc Bolland’s executive assistant, will succeed Skinner and take up the role at the end of March.
An M&S spokeswoman said: “Andrew has been with us for 28 years and feels that the time is right to move on. He leaves with our warm thanks for the contribution he has made to the business over the years and our very best wishes for the future.”
