Miriam Lahage will join N Brown’s lingerie etailer Figleaves as chief executive this spring.
She will report directly to N Brown chief executive Angela Spindler at the helm of the lingerie firm, which was founded in 1998.
Lahage spent 21 years at TJX Companies, rising from store manager to ecommerce director, and worked as a consultant for Net-a-Porter from January 2010 to June 2010. She was vice president of fashion at Ebay from September 2010 to March 2012 and joined plus-size womenswear etailer Navabi as chief merchant in March 2015. She will continue at Navabi as a non-executive director.
Natalie Burrows has been leading Figleaves on an interim basis since the departure of Fiona Holmes last autumn, who joined interior furnishings company Walker Greenbank. Burrows will now become customer director, a newly-created position.
“I am delighted that Miriam is joining the team at Figleaves,” said Spindler. “Her retail digital expertise is really second to none and will help us to support our growth ambitions for the brand.”
Lahage added: “Figleaves has to be one of the UK’s most memorable digital retail brands with an amazing heritage. I look forward to working with the team to ensure that when it comes to lingerie and swimwear the retailer is the first choice for customers both old and new.”
