in the role.

Marsden (pictured) joined Asos in September 2012. Before that, he held top IT management roles at very different companies including Royal Bank of Scotland, Egg and Orange.

Asos has dedicated websites and local teams in the US, France, Germany, Australia and Russia – and launched an operation in China in 2013.

When Marsden spoke to Computer Weekly in 2013 he had a team of 280 in-house staff, plus about 100 Cognizant contractors in China and India.

Asos, which was established in 2000, has had two profit warnings this year and saw the share price drop 30%.

A spokesman for Asos said the company is reviewing the management structure of its IT department following Marsden’s departure: “A process to find his successor is underway, both internally and externally,” he said.
