Nick Robertson steps down as Chief Executive of Asos

Endaba Group

The founder and Chief Executive Nick Robertson has reportedly announced his departure from the online retailer. He will remain on the board as a non-executive Director according to sources. Nick Beighton, the current Chief Operating Officer, is suspected to take over the role. Helen Ashton, former chief executive of debt management group Capquest, recently joined as Chief Financial Officer. She will take on some responsibilities that will allow Beighton to handle the Chief Executive role. Is this a permanent fix?
