Exclusive: Arcadia veteran Wesley Taylor leaves Burton

Wesley Taylor has left his role as managing director of Arcadia Group’s menswear retailer Burton after more than 10 years with the business, Drapers understands. 

Multiple sources told Drapers Taylor has walked out, but his reasons for leaving are not known.

It is understood staff have been informed he will not be returning.

His departure is said to be noteworthy, as Arcadia boss Sir Philip Green has a close-knit inner circle, including Topshop managing director Mary Homer and chief operating officer David Shepherd, who have all been with the business for more than 10 years.

In November, Drapers revealed that Miss Selfridge retail director Gerry Harte had exited after almost 20 years at Arcadia. At the time, sources told Drapers there had been a number of head office redundancies.

A spokesman for Arcadia declined to comment on Taylor’s departure.
