Susanne Given will be the new buying director of John Lewis fashion. She will take up her new role once she joins the department store chain on February 8. This was confirmed by John Lewis.
Given will fill the vacancy that has been created after Peter Ruis has been promoted as the buying and brand director from buying director of fashion in May, 2010. Once she joins John Lewis, she will be directly reporting to Peter Ruis.
According to Ruis, the appointment of Given is suggestive of the potential as well as aspirations in Textile fashion which is the company’s most rapidly growing area. She will be responsible for the development of the company’s premium brand strategy to increase its market share in the United Kingdom.
