Buying supremo recruited by new Ciro Citterio boss

Menswear retailer Ciro Citterio has appointed Carol Beeston, formerly of River Island, to the new post of buying and merchandising controller.

Her arrival is one of the changes instigated by new managing director Saeed Hatteea.

Hatteea said: 'I've been looking at all areas of the business and there were certain operating elements that clearly needed strengthening. Buying was one of them.' IT and management information systems will also be reviewed and personnel and merchandising functions boosted.

At present Ciro Citterio is running a 70 per cent-off sale to clear a stock overhang.
