Ann Summers has poached House of Fraser’s former product and trading director Maria Hollins and Game’s chief marketing officer Natalie Amosu.

Collins previously held director-level roles at Arcadia, Whistles and Asos, and left her role after two years at House of Fraser, while Amosu worked with Arcadia, Asos, New Look and Next, before working at Game for two years.

The lingerie retailer has also boosted its non-executive board by appointing Mark Gifford, who was previously the chief financial officer of Game and House of Fraser.

Hollins is expected to work alongside current managing director Vanessa Gold and chief executive Jacqueline Gold.

“In 2018 we made a substantial investment in a brand relaunch, as well as our technology and IT systems, which is enabling us to digitally enhance our customer experience,” Gold said.

“At this progressive time for Ann Summers we felt the time was right to bring in more talent as we look to the future of the business.”
