Senior director at Asos to leave

One of the architects of Asos's growth over the past decade is to step down from the online retailer. Its international director, Jon Kamaluddin, is to leave the board in October and exit the clothing specialist by December.

Asos, which ships to 241 countries, increased its sales abroad by 45 per cent to £111m over the quarter to the end of February.
