Selfridges owner in hunt for fresh talent

Wittington Investments, the Canadian company owned by billionaire Galen Weston, which runs department store chains Selfridges, Brown Thomas and Canadian department store chain Holt Renfrew, has issued a search for senior-level talent to join the company.

Wittington Investments has appointed London headhunters Armstrong International to identify a high-profile luxury goods retailer who will “bolster management” at the portfolio. Armstrong International told Drapers there was a need to bolster management and that they would like to identify rising stars at their competitors.

Wittington Investments declined to comment on the appointment of Armstrong International but said that there “was no mandate” to look for a chief executive of the business. It added that it constantly looks for talent to join the company but was not poaching from competitors.
