Selfridges marketing director Sally Scott is to leave the luxury department store business.
Scott has worked at Selfridges for six years and was previously at Canadian department store chain Holt Renfrew, also for six years. She will leave at the end of June. Both retailers are owned by Selfridges Group, which is backed by Canadian billionaires the Weston family.
It is unknown where Scott is going to. Selfridges is recruiting for a replacement. It is also recruiting for a director of womenswear and kidswear after Anita Barr moved to head up menswear.
Barr has become director of menswear, taking on the role vacated by David Walker-Smith, who was promoted to buying director of menswear, beauty, and home and leisure in January. Barr will report in to him.
Barr, who had been director of womenswear and kidswear since 2008, was previously buying manager for men’s contemporary for the Superbrands and Spirit departments. She joined Selfridges in 2000 and before that worked at Harrods as a buyer for its Way In department.
