New Man Of ASOS
Brian McBride, now the new Asos chairman has spent the past 6 years as managing director of Amazon, and his CV also includes holding senior roles in companies such as Dell and T mobile. Showing he has some fair knowledge within the industry.
This has all come about after Lord Waheed Alli announced that he was leaving after 12 years being chairman at Asos. His salary was on £150,00 and last year he sold £30 million stake in Asos -should be a nice retirement for the 47 year old millionaire entrepreneur.
McBride has strong faith in the company and big plans, saying he ‘believes the company has the platform, proposition and ambition to deliver its vision of becoming fashion for twentysomethings, globally’ The new chairman will expect to receive £100,000 worth of the companies shares.
Asos is currently working steadily towards a target of £1billion sales yearly, perfect timing for McBride to step in and show off his buiness skills.
