Aquascutum drafts in former Juicy Couture finance director Mark Taylor

Aquascutum has drafted in former Juicy Couture finance director Mark Taylor to lead its UK business.

Taylor replaces former chief executive Tim Dally, who stepped down because of ill health earlier this year.

Taylor, who was also previously head of finance at Jigsaw, took up the role of chief operating officer of the UK arm, Aquascutum 1851, last week.

He reports to Aquascutum International’s executive director and general manager Andrew Chan.

According to Retail Week, YGM, the Hong Kong fashion retailer that bought Aquascutum out of administration for £15m in May last year, decided not to directly replace Dally as chief executive.

Instead Chan will liaise between YGM and Aquascutum in the UK and will work alongside Taylor.

Taylor said he planned to maximise its presence across “retail and online”.

Meanwhile, Aquascutum has delayed the opening of a London West End flagship after struggling to find a site.

It hopes to open the store at the end of this year or the beginning of 2014, instead of this autumn.

In the interim Aquascutum is on the hunt for two additional stores in the capital, which it hopes to open this year
