Asos sees its chief information officer depart

Tuesday, 02 September 2014

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.
