Coggles’ buying director Adam Jagger is leaving the business after two years to join Topman as buying manager.
It is thought that Jagger’s departure comes as part of a restructure within the business, although nothing has been confirmed.
Jagger has been in his current role for just two years, but he started his career at the indie in 1995 aged 15, before being offered a full-time role as store manager of the York branch in 2000.
He left in 2008 to join Asos as buyer for premium menswear, returning in 2011 to replace Mark Bage overseeing both men’s and womenswear.
Bage, who is now chief executive and creative director, said Jagger’s ascent through the business “was a great achievement”.
“That he has secured a senior buying position at Topman is a reflection on his ability as a buyer and also the positive reputation of Coggles,” he added.
Bage and his buying team are taking on the reins on an interim basis.
