Steve Spellacy leaves Footasylum after four months

Footasylum’s head of buying Steve Spellacy has left the young fashion footwear retailer after just four months in the role.

Spellacy joined Footasylum in January and replaced co-founder and buying director Steve Makin, who stepped down from his position in November after seven years at the retailer. Spellacy was previously buying director at JD Sports.

Footasylum co-founder David Makin has now assumed the role of head of buying, which chief executive John Wardle said was a “very positive step forward” for the retailer.

Wardle added: “Although Steve was only with us for a short period of time he has been influential in moving the business forward. We have parted on good terms and we wish him all the best as he returns to his wholesale business.”

Spellacy is also the owner of design, sourcing, sales and distribution company Bed Pennie, which works with brands including Superdry and Duck & Cover.
