Monsoon Accessorize has hired Jacques Vert commercial director John Bovill to head up its IT and e-commerce operations.

Bovill will start in his role as IT and e-commerce director at the fashion and accessories retailer on July 1.

A Monsoon spokesman said: “John joins with a wealth of experience gained at a range of retailers.”

Prior to Jacques Vert, where Bovill has been for just over a year, he was group IT director at Aurora Fashions. He has also formerly worked at Sears and Harrods.

The appointment follows that of chief executive John Browett in March and former George at Asda and Marks & Spencer executive Kevin Rusling as its international director.
