Gough has several years of experience working on Pure London and Pure Man. His latest role was Head of Menswear, Footwear and Accessories at Ascential.

I’m really looking forward to getting to know all the brands and helping them to achieve their goals over the next few seasons through closer collaborations, improving our hosted buyer programme, and implementing a matchmaking service”, he added.
The next edition of Jacket Required will take place in London on July 24-25. Moda runs in Birmingham from August 4-6.
