Rees-John joined Topman in 2013 as head of ecommerce. He previously worked at Marks & Spencer for eight years in a variety of roles.
The news follows a restructuring at Arcadia Group.
As exclusively revealed by Drapers last month, the company is making a several head office roles redundant to “streamline” and future-proof the business.
At the time, a spokesman said: “The fashion retail landscape is continuously changing. In order to prepare for the future, we have completed a thorough external business review over the last several months.
“As a result we are proposing, subject to consultation, to make a number of changes to roles across the group. These changes, which represent less than 2% of total headcount, will streamline business support services, reduce duplication and increase efficiency.”
Arcadia group owns Topshop/Topman, Miss Selfridge, Dorothy Perkins, Burton, Evans, Wallis and Outfit.
Arcadia has yet to respond to requests for comment.
