Marks & Spencer clothing supply chain boss to exit

Another executive, Gordon Mowat, is leaving Marks & Spencer

Marks & Spencer’s director of supply chain and logistics for clothing and home, Gordon Mowat, is to leave the retailer after two years in the role, Retail Week can reveal.

Mowat’s departure from the department store chain comes after chief executive Steve Rowe took direct charge of the clothing business following supply problems that led to a lack of key stock.

A former Morrisons property director and chief operating officer of Jack Wills, Mowat will be succeeded on an interim basis by Stephen Fitzgerald, Rowe’s former executive assistant, who will take on an expanded supply chain role.
