Two key senior leaders within the Oasis and Warehouse Group have reportedly stepped down as part of the retailer’s administration process.
According to Drapers, Hash Ladha left his post as chief executive of the company – which owns the Oasis and Warehouse fashion chains as well as online retailer The Idle Man.
Group chief product officer Paula Stewart has also reportedly left her role, almost two months after she was promoted to it, due to the administration.

Retail Gazette contacted the administrators from Deloitte regarding the resignations, but they declined to comment.
The news comes after Oasis and Warehouse filed for administration two weeks ago, which resulted in the immediate redundancy of 202 jobs while a further 1800 are at risk as they remain on furlough during the lockdown.
Oasis, Warehouse and The Idle Man continue to trade online from their respective websites in the short-term while the administrators assess options for the future.
The firm’s operations in Ireland, Sweden and worldwide franchise partners are not affected.
Ladha was promoted to chief executive of Oasis and Warehouse in 2018, stepping into the role left vacant by Liz Evans.
He first joined the company in 2010 as a multichannel director before working his way up to Oasis chief operating officer in 2013.
On the other hand, Stewart, who was Warehouse managing director, was promoted to the newly-created role of chief product officer in March this year.
