Missguided online CEO

Missguided online chief executive Gareth Jones has left the retailer after just eight months in the role.

After leaving his post as Shop Direct deputy chief executive in December 2016, Jones traveled a bit with his family before joining Missguided last September.

He reported to group chief executive Nitin Passi.

The online fashion retailer has confirmed Jones’ departure.

“It’s with mutual agreement that Gareth Jones has left the business, we wish him all the best with future endeavours,” Missguided said in a statement.

Jones started at Shop Direct in 2009 as group retailer director before working his way up top the deputy chief executive role in October 2014.

The Retail Gazette has contacted Jones for comment.
