Missguided chief customer officer Kenyatte Nelson has left the fast-fashion business after eight months.

Nelson joined Missguided from Shop Direct in March this year. It is understood he will not be replaced at Missguided.

Drapers magazine reported that Missguided chief executive Nitin Passi told staff that Nelson’s departure followed Passi “simplifying the business, getting back on track and getting back in control” over the past 12 months.

Nelson’s departure follows that of Missguided CEO for online Gareth Jones, also formerly of Shop Direct, who left the business after eight months in May.

Missguided chief technology officer John Allen also departed to become chief executive of womenswear etailer Nobody’s Child in October.
