(NEW YORK) On the heels of chief merchant Marigay McKee's resignation from Harrods to become president of Saks Fifth Avenue this December, the London retailer has hired from within to appoint two new fashion directors. Helen David and Jason Broderick have both been promoted to fashion director positions. David, who was previously general merchandise manager of women's wear and fine jewelry, will now oversee women's wear, accessories, fine jewelry, and children's wear as fashion director. Broderick, who was previously general merchandise manager of men's wear, sports, and watches, will continue to oversee these categories as fashion director at the department store.
Broderick has been with the store since 1998, while David has been with Harrods for six years. In her new role, David will oversee buying teams that are responsible for two-thirds of the store. Broderick and David's roles are new and they will join Bruce Langlands, who is the director of food and beverages, and Annalise Quest, who is the home director, to make up the senior merchant team. They will report to Harrods managing director Michael Ward.
