Oasis and Warehouse’s group chief executive Hash Ladha has stepped down from his role as the company continues its administration process.

Ladha was promoted to the role in 2018 after former chief executive Liz Evans left to take the helm at Fat Face.

He initially joined the group as multichannel director for Oasis, Warehouse, Karen Millen and Coast in 2010, before taking on the role of chief operating officer for Oasis in 2013. 

Oasis and Warehouse collapsed into administration earlier this month as the impacts of coronavirus pushed the struggling retailer over the edge. 

Restructuring partners Rob Harding and Richard Hawes of Deloitte were appointed as joint administrators to oversee the process.

The administration has led to 202 redundancies across the group. The remaining 1,801 employees have been furloughed as per the government scheme, with 41 roles retained to help administrators. 

The Oasis, Warehouse and Idle Man fascias have continued to trade online.

The news, first reported by Drapers, comes just one month after Warehouse managing director Paula Stewart was given the newly created role of chief product officer of both brands, while group finance director Matt Robinson was promoted to chief financial officer.

The group have been contacted for comment.
