Boohoo has reportedly appointed a new supply chain director while its chief information officer has resigned after six years with the online retail group.

According to Drapers, former Primark supply chain director David James has been hired to take on the same role at Boohoo.

James had been with Primark since 2016, but was supply chain director from September 2017 until the start of this month.

Prior that, he worked in senior logistics and supply chain roles at Sainsbury’s, Matalan and Asda.

Drapers also reported that chief information officer Harry Dixon stepped down after nearly six years with the company.

Before joining Boohoo, he had senior tech roles at Rentalcars.com and Thomas Cook.

The changes come after Primark’s former chief operating officer John Lyttle took over Boohoo chief executive in March.

Former joint chief executives Carol Kane and Mahmud Kamani stepped aside and took on boardroom roles.

Boohoo operates the eponymous online fashion retailer as well as PrettyLittleThing, Nasty Gal and the recently-acquired MissPap.
