Ruth Golightly to leave Asda to join Blues Group

After 17 years working for Asda, latterly as head of womenswear and the licensing team, Ruth Golightly is joining the Blues Group as divisional sales and design director for Blues Nightwear.

As part of the group’s recent refiguration, the newly created position will see Ruth heading up both kids and ladies nightwear for the apparel specialist.

Commenting, Ruth (pictured with some of her new team members at the recent Peppa Pig Partners Day) told “After 17 years of working for Asda, it feels the right time to take up this great opportunity to join Blues and work with the amazing team there.”

For Mike Coles, group managing director of the Blues Group (which includes Dennicci, Blues Clothing, Blues Nightwear, Brecrest Sport and Cohen & Wilks), Ruth’s appointment is a “big tick, tick, tick” for the business. “Ruth brings a wealth of experience of retailers’ needs as well as product knowledge, we are delighted that she is joining our team.”

Ruth officially starts her new role in September.
