Liz Catterall moves up as Christos Angelides gets set to leave Next

Next director of womenswear Liz Catterall has been promoted to a new role with a broader remit, following long-standing product director Christos Angelides’ imminent move to the US.

Drapers understands Catterall will take on the overall lead for womenswear, menswear and kidswear in a new position with a focus on people development. She is not directly replacing Angelides and as such other divisions including home will not come under her remit.

Una Joyce, who currently works in Catterall’s team, is being promoted to director of womenswear, it is believed.

It is thought there is no change to the role of current director of menswear Richard Wiles. Next declined to comment to Drapers.

Catterall has been at Next for several years, having been promoted from childrenswear product director to the womenswear job in 2007, replacing Fiona Lambert, who moved to George at Asda.

Catterall will not take on Angelides’ board position. Next previously noted it had four executive directors, four non-executive directors and a chairman.

Angelides will leave Next in September after 28 years at the company and the following month will move to the US to become president of Abercrombie & Fitch and Abercrombie & Fitch Kids. He will report into chief executive Mike Jeffries. 

Angelides’s is the third major departure announced in just over a year. Property director Andrew Varley retired last month after 27 years, with Land Securities’ Dominic O’Rourke taking on the role. Finance director David Keens will retire next March, after 28 years at the company. He is being replaced by brand finance director Amanda James.
