The global head of e-commerce at Barbour, David Cottage, has stepped down from the role after just four months at the British fashion brand.

David Cottage (R) has left Barbour after a four month tenure

Cottage, who took up the position last August, resigned just before Christmas in order to be closer to his family, The Drum understands.

It is not clear when or if Cottage will be replaced, but Barbour is currently reviewing its staffing and structures and a decision will be announced over the coming weeks. At the time of his hiring Barbour said it was putting in place plans to become “the best British lifestyle brand worldwide by 2020”.

Barbour made its debut at London Fashion Week in February 2014 following the launch of its first e-commerce site in August 2013.
