Spanish retailer Inditex has appointed Bestseller Group’s Paddy McCormack as property director of its Massimo Dutti chain in the UK, Drapers has learned.
McCormack will oversee Massimo Dutti’s 11-store UK portfolio. It is not known when he will take up the post.
He has worked at Bestseller Group, which last week acquired home shopping retailer MandM Direct for £140m, since 2011 and is currently UK and Ireland real estate manager.
The privately owned Danish company runs a number of fashion chains including womenswear brand Vero Moda and young fashion brand Jack & Jones, and has 3,000 stores in 38 countries. Previously McCormack worked for DSG International and Swedish premium brand J Lindeberg.
Massimo Dutti opened its first UK store in 2003, a three-storey flagship on Regent Street. It has since added 10 more, all in and around London.
Worldwide the brand has more than 600 stores in just under 60 countries.
