LONDON May 8 British retailer Marks & Spencer
on Wednesday said it had appointed Next's Jo
Jenkins as its new director of lingerie and beauty.
Last month, Janie Schaffer left after spending just three
months in the role, dealing another blow to the 129-year-old
retailer's struggling clothing business.
Jenkins joins M&S from Next, Britain's second biggest
clothing retailer, where she has been product director for its
womenswear business since 2007. She started her career at M&S
and spent over 12 years with the business in various retail and
buying roles, before joining Next in 1997.
