The choice of its next chief executive will be crucial for Asos, which has seen its shares in value halve amid investor unrest.
Robb is among a number of candidates being interviewed, with Asos expected to name Beighton’s replacement in April when it releases its results to the market.
Robb spent a decade at Farfetch, before which he had founded and run Cocosa. com, another fashion business.
His current roles include acting as a senior adviser to Felix Capital, an early-stage investor in companies such as Farfetch and Deliveroo.
Asos said last week that it would move its listing to London’s main stock market from the junior Aim exchange.
