Shop Direct group marketing director Kenyatte Nelson has been appointed as chief customer officer at Missguided, Drapers can reveal.
It is understood he will join the business in spring 2018 and will focus on customer proposition, customer communication and strategy.
He is the third Shop Direct executive to defect to the fast fashion etailer in recent weeks.
