Burberry vice president joins Chinti & Parker

Burberry vice president of digital commerce Monica Ross has left the business after ten years to join British knitwear label Chinti & Parker as managing director.

In the newly created position, Ross has assumed responsibility for the day to day management, with a focus on design, product development and brand building.

On the hire, a statement from Chinti & Parker said: “In looking to the future it was clear we needed different leadership skills to achieve the potential, and realise the ambition, we have for the brand.”

Ross has been working with the business in a non-official capacity since October 2014 but is now fulfilling the role.

During her stint at Burberry, Ross held a string of positions including vice president of kidswear and commercial director. Previously she was director of concessions at House of Fraser and later buying and merchandising director at Selfridges.

Chinti & Parker launched in 2009 and sells clothing, specialising in knitwear, alongside nightwear and accessories, online via and UK stockists including Browns, Liberty and Net-a-Porter. In August 2014 it debuted a 34-piece menswear range.

Retail prices for knitwear start from £190 for a textured sweatshirt and range up to £360 for a cashmere hoodie.
