Harrods has undergone an executive reshuffle, appointing Annalise Quest as its new director of home.
Her role includes responsibility for the Toy Kingdom section in-store. The move sees Quest take over from David Miller, who is moving on to pastures new.
Quest (pictured) joined the company in 1997 as the assistant buyer for the Beauty Apothecary. She has since then held various positions within the retailer including assistant buyer for perfumery and cosmetics and buyer for the Beauty Apothecary. Quest left the company in 2002 when she joined American brand Bliss Spa as vice president of global sales, overseeing growth of 500 per cent for the company.
She returned in 2007 to take up her most recent role as Harrods’ general merchandising manager for beauty and fine jewellery. Under her leadership, the Beauty division experienced a yearly double-digit growth.
Quest has also joined the ToyNews Retail Advisory Board, commenting on key issues each month.
