Argos ecommerce boss Ross Clemmow to lead Debenhams multichannel strategy

Debenhams has hired Argos multichannel director Ross Clemmow to fill the gap left by its own ecommerce boss Simon Forster.

Forster left the department store business in December to join Selfridges, having been instrumental in Debenham’s online sales growth, which in the year to September 1 surged 40%, compared to wider market growth of 13%.

Clemmow will join the retailer as divisional trading director of e-commerce in June, with head of online Fiona Lay filing the role on an interim basis.

He joins from Argos, where he was director of e-commerce and multichannel strategy.

Debenhams’ chief executive Michael Sharp said: “He brings a wealth of e-commerce experience to Debenhams.”
