Beverley Aspinall has announced she will step down from her position as chief executive of the prestigious department store at the end of May.
Many perceive Aspinall to be the driving force behind Fortnum’s recent resurgence. When the outgoing chief executive took charge of the retailer in 2005, it was making a pre-tax loss of £1.2 million. Aspinall departs on the back of last year’s pre-tax profits, which topped £1.1 million.
