Oasis is restructuring its buying and merchandising team as it promotes buying boss Sarah Welsh to product director.

Welsh’s promotion coincides with the departure of merchandise director Richard Hindley, who will not be replaced. Welsh will now be accountable for buying and product merchandising.

Welsh, who has been at Oasis for 11 years – the past six spent as buying director - will continue to work in partnership with design director Clive Reeve.

Oasis and sister firm Warehouse are in the process of being spun off from parent company Aurora Fashions.
