Schuh appoints new buying director
Footwear chain Schuh has appointed Nicola Monachello, formerly of New Look, as its new buying director.
Monachello replaces David Spencer who stood down in March after 21 years with the Edinburgh-headquartered company. She joins Schuh's eight-strong management team led by managing director Colin Temple.
“I am absolutely delighted to welcome Nicola to Schuh as our buying director. A proven ability with branded and private label footwear combined with her natural skill set as a great people manager gives me a fantastic new member to the Schuh leadership team,” said Temple.
Monachello brings with her more than 15 years' experience, gained at New Look, Wallis and Faith, and will be overseeing existing sports, kids, fashion and the company’s own label buying teams while working closely with key brand partners to redefine the buying strategy.
“I am so excited to be joining Schuh and returning to my roots, working for a standalone footwear retailer. Schuh is an iconic high street brand name with amazing potential,” she said.
