Urban Outfitters has poached Topshop buying director Emma Wisden to head up its European business.
Wisden took up her role as European managing director of the US-based fashion chain today.
She replaces Hugh Wahla, who left the business last summer. Chief operating officer Andrew McLean took on the role on an interim basis.
Wisden joined Topshop in 1999. It is not known if she has been replaced.
Topshop has not responded to Drapers’ request for a comment.
