Asos’ top management took home more than £2.6m in pay, and pocketed a further £55m through selling off shares in the year to August 31, 2013.
Kate Bostock was paid more than £414,000 for her seven month tenure at the etailer, while chief executive Nick Robertson pocketed more than £803,000 for the year according to documents filed at Companies House last week.
Bostock joined the business from Marks & Spencer in the middle of January as executive director of product and trading. She resigned in mid-July, before resurfacing at Aurora Fashions’ occasionwear business Coast.
She was not the only departing member of Asos’ staff to do well. Asos executive Rob Bready, who this year joined Lord Waheed Alli’s Indian etail venture Koovs, took home just under £290,000, receiving a £75,000 pay off for “loss of office”.
Lord Alli was himself paid £62,500 as a non-executive director of Asos.
Chief financial officer Nick Beighton received £604,000 while international director Jon Kamaluddin took home £527,000.
This financial year saw several of Asos’ top brass sell off more than £55m-worth of shares, with both Robertson and Lord Alli realising £16m apiece last October.
Bready sold £8.4m-worth of shares, while Beighton and Kamaluddin sold off £7.8m and £6.5m each.
