Before joining Asos in 2021, Mecklenburgh served as group financial controller at British services group Inchcape, which has an annual turnover of around £8bn.
Asos said it “continues its process to appoint a new CFO” and the news comes after the business revealed it would be cutting 100 head office jobs as part of a cost-saving 12-month plan last month.
The redundancies came weeks after Asos revealed it had swung into the red, making an operating loss of almost £10 million in its year to 31 August.
Asos’ new chief executive José Antonio Ramos Calamonte promised “decisive, short-term operational measures to simplify the business, alongside steps to unlock longer-term sustainable growth”.
