The Body Shop head of commercial design Heather Cashen has left just two months after being promoted to the position (DW 8 January).

She is taking time off for a break, according to head of design Paul Porral, who will take full responsibility for the design department and will appoint someone at a lower level to manage the studio.

Cashen and Porral were appointed after The Body Shop split former head of global design Jon Turner’s role into two jobs following an exhaustive, but ultimately unsuccessful, search for an external candidate.
