British Fashion Council restructures management team

The British Fashion Council (BFC) has restructured its management team in a bid to give greater clarity to its management team roles.

Chief executive Caroline Rush will take on the responsibility for innovation, marketing and communications and special projects. Simon Ward, currently joint chief executive, will take on the newly-formed role of chief operating officer and take charge of the financial and operational controls of the business.

Honorary treasurer Chris Inman, who has been in the role since 2006, has stepped down from the day-to-day running of the BFC but will continue in the role of treasurer and advisor as part of the executive board.

The BFC has also set up its first executive board, which is comprised of chairman Harold Tillman, chair of the development committee Hilary Riva, treasurer Chris Inman, Rush and Ward.

Harold Tillman said: “With the increase in initiative activity, the growth of London Fashion Week, and the digital and global outreach programmes, more clarity and definition at the top was required as Chris Inman takes a step back from financial management.”
