Footasylum buyer Gareth Griffiths will leave the young fashion and footwear retailer on September 27 after eight years with the business.
Griffiths is taking up a new role in the Netherlands, but would not confirm what this is. He joined Footasylum in 2006. Prior to this he was a senior men’s clothing buyer for Allsports, where he spent two years.
It is not known whether Footasylum will look to fill Griffiths’ previous role. Its buying team has undergone several changes over the past year.
In May, head of buying Steve Spellacy left after just four months in the role. He had joined in January to replace co-founder and buying director Steve Makin, who stepped down from his position in November after seven years.
The chain, which has 29 UK stores, grew sales by 27% to £57.1m in the year to February 28, 2013, as like-for-like sales rose 17%.
Operating profit increased from £49,479 to £1.1m.
Footasylum currently stocks about 150 footwear and fashion brands.
