Harrods splits McKee's chief merchant role in two

Harrods has promoted two members of its merchandising team to fashion directors to take on responsibilities previously held by chief merchant Marigay McKee.

Helen David will be fashion director of womenswear, accessories, fine jewellery and kidswear while Jason Broderick will cover menswear, sports and watches.

Both were previously general merchandise managers, with David having been at Harrods for six years and Broderick for 15 years. 

They will report into managing director Michael Ward and join the senior merchant team, which also includes director of food and beverages Bruce Langlands and Annalise Quest, director of homeware.

Ward said: “Both are excellent merchants, with an exceptional eye for luxury, playing an integral part in developing the world class offer that Harrods is known for.”

They will jointly take on duties left over from chief merchant Marigay McKee, who is on her last working week at the department store.

She is taking time out to go trekking in Nepal, before taking up her new role as president of Saks Fifth Avenue in January.
