Plus-size womenswear retailer Yours Clothing has promoted Resh Dorka to joint managing director.
Dorka joined the company three years ago as sales and marketing director and will join founder Andrew Killingsworth in leading the company’s expansion.
The company, which trades from 79 stores in the UK, has opened 12 so far this year and has a further 13 planned before the end of the year.
It also trades from eight stores in the Middle East through a franchise partnership.
The Peterborough-based company’s website accounts for 45% of the business and ships to over 200 countries, with significant volume going to the US and Australia.
“The appointment of Resh Dorka is yet another major step in the growth, investment and development of our business,” said Killingsworth, who founded the company in 1994.
“Last year we moved to new headquarters and warehouse premises as well as making significant investment in new stores, the product ranges and people. Next year will see further progress with the implementation of new systems and continued investment in stores, product and people.”
The company’s turnover was £32.1m for the year ended February 2, 2014, compared with £27m during the same period last year. Pre-tax profit was £2.3m in 2014, up from £1.8m in 2013.
