About Our Client

Our client was founded just under 20 years ago by a man with a strong desire to bring his own vision to life in the retail market. He began by buying five retail sites in London and it took nearly one year to perfect the brand and build a strong team of equally passionate people. Over the next few years our client continued to expand, building 31 retailing sites and establishing themselves as a national brand. More recently, the company has expanded into the European market with close to 1000 stores globally and a workforce of around 5000.

They are now well recognised globally, having established themselves as one of the most admired retailers in their market. They are a success because of the team of passionate people who know the brand inside out and the founders of the company are as much a part of the company today as they were in the early days.
