British online retailer Asos has bid farewell to its chief information officer, Pete Marsden this week.
Marsden, who had held his position at the fashion e-tailer for two years, left the company “by mutual consent,” reported Retail Week. A company spokesperson for Asos went into further detail explaining his departure: “Asos is reviewing the management structure of its IT department following the departure of Pete Marsden by mutual consent. A process to find his successor is underway, both internally and externally.”
In his former role, Marsden has been credited for helping spearhead the e-tailers international expansion into foreign markets, including the launch of Asos's Chinese and Russian websites. It remains unclear whether he left to take on a new role elsewhere. Prior to joining Asos, Marsden was head of development at Royal Bank of Scotland.
