Spindler exits in Debenhams reshuffle

Debenhams managing director Angela Spindler is to leave the department store on November 30, less than a year after she joined, following a management shake up.

Spindler joined Debenhams in February and had responsibility for marketing and branding at the department store.

Debenhams chief operating officer Michael Sharp has been appointed deputy chief executive of Debenhams. Sharp will assume responsibility for marketing and online.

Suzanne Harlow, who is currently trading director of womenswear lingerie and women’s accessories, has been appointed to the executive management board as group trading director and will be responsible for all of the buying and merchandising functions.

Debenhams chief executive Rob Templeman said: “Michael’s track record and knowledge of the Debenhams business, along with his long established pedigree in the fashion industry , leaves him well placed to take on the position as deputy chief executive and the additional responsibilities it entails. Suzanne has strong fashion credentials and has been responsible for much of the development of womenswear over the past few years, particularly Designers at Debenhams, and she will now bring this expertise to the rest of the business.”

Templeman added: “We would like to thank Angela for her work over the last year at Debenhams and wish her all the best in her future plans.”
