Undoubtedly you have read in the press that embattled retailer Marks & Spencer (MKS) has just lost its fourth clothing chief in a decade. Apparently it is something to do with a lack of skinny jeans availability. Whatever...but it goes to show that M&S is still struggling to find its place in the modern day clothing retail market. Perhaps even more intriguingly Jill McDonald is going to be temporarily replaced by Steve Rowe, the current CEO of M&S...and ex-head of clothing. I cannot remember it doing that much better under his tenure...
