Jigsaw omnichannel director Kate Holt has resigned from her role and will leave the business this September after serving nine years, according to Drapers.

Holt first joined Jigsaw in November 2010 as group director of ecommerce, before being promoted to omnichannel director in March 2017.

She previously served as ecommerce consultant for fashion retailer Artigiano from April to November 2010, and as Austin Reed’s ecommerce manager from 2007 to 2010.

“Kate Holt, our omnichannel director, has decided to leave the business to work on some other exciting projects that have come her way,” Jigsaw chief executive Toby Foreman told Drapers.

Jigsaw has seen several board members resign in the past year.

The retailer’s former chairman Charles Atterton and chief executive Chris Stephenson resigned from their roles at the same time.

Atterton served as chairman for over 20 years, but still serves as Jigsaw’s non-executive director.

Meanwhile, Jigsaw chief finance officer Claire Wain left her role in March to join Jack Wills, while global buying and merchandising director Shailina Parti left in May after five years.
