Head of Ecommerce, Interim ContractCase Studies
Gant is a Swedish owned lifestyle brand. The UK based Head of ecommerce was due to be seconded to manage a global multi-channel project based in their HQ in Sweden. Gant needed a replacement Head for the UK business, as outside Sweden, the UK is its’ biggest market.
Our brief was to find an interim who would have strong trading and operational skills who could also be hands-on in directing a small team trading the site. Experience of fashion was essential – ideally from working with other premium brands.
We identified interim ecommerce professionals within our network who we knew and trusted and discussed with Gant their areas of expertise. The successful interim had over 10 years experience managing online businesses covering the luxury and premium fashion sector.
The Managing Director was very impressed with his performance of our interim manager so his contract was extended and he was invited to participate in the Global ecommerce programme.
