Windsmoor seeks marketing and sales chief for merged operation

Fashion outfit the Windsmoor Group is recruiting a sales and marketing director to head its newly merged retail and marketing division.

Jane Sebry, former group retail operations director, has been made redundant and former head of marketing Georgina Kelly has left the company without a job to go to. Sebry is believed to have started a new job elsewhere.

The sales and marketing director will manage retail, sales and marketing for Windsmoor brands, which include Planet, Precis Petite and Windsmoor. Previously retail, sales and marketing were managed separately, with Kelly and Sebry reporting to chief executive Ruth Henderson.

The new sales and marketing director will oversee more than 2,000 employees and report directly to Henderson. A marketing manager has also been appointed and will report to the sales and marketing director when the position is filled.

A spokesman for Windsmoor says the new management structure will not affect the team at a lower level.

Windsmoor has an annual turnover of £150m. It sells mainly through concessions in UK department stores, as well as through Planet shops and retail outlets.

The group’s outerwear brand Dannimac was sold to Signature Brands International in January for £1.9m.
