Selfridges restructures top buying roles

Selfridges has restructured its top two buying positions into one role, six months after the departure of David Walker-Smith.

Sebastian Manes, buying director of womenswear, accessories and childrenswear, has been promoted to the role of buying and merchandising director with immediate effect.

The newly-created role expands Manes’ responsibilities to include menswear, home and leisure.  He will continue to report into managing director Anne Pitcher.

Manes joined the luxury department store in 2003 as a senior accessories buyer, rising to his most recent role in February 2011.

Walker-Smith, who took on the role of buying director for menswear, home and beauty at the same time, left last December to become managing director of Fenwick’s Bond Street store.
