Sourcing specialists Mark and Neal Lindsey, the brothers credited with overhauling Marks & Spencer’s clothing production, are reportedly “highly likely” to step down from the retailer next year.
The Hong Kong-based brothers, who also streamlined Next’s supply chain, have been responsible for reviewing M&S’s supply chain, sourcing more products directly from factories.
New CEO Steve Rowe is reviewing whether their contracts should be renewed when they expire next spring, Sky News has reported. Sources have told the news outlet the brothers are unlikely to stay with the business.
Rowe announced his new strategy for M&S today (May 25).
