Elaine Deste has joined high street chain Monsoon Accessorize as its new finance director.
She replaces Adrian Walsh, who has been the retailer’s interim finance and property director since August last year.
Deste joins Monsoon Accessorize as it prepares to undergo a major restructure that will see the separation of the two Monsoon and Accessorize brands and the closing of 141 stores nationwide.
Deste is moving from O2 Telefonica, where she spent eight years. Her most recent role there was finance director for the company’s business-to-business division.
Prior to that, she was planning and performance director and logistics finance director at Safeway.
