Contract Type

Our client is a high growth entrepreneurial PE backed online retailer, disrupting a market dominated by bricks and mortar operators unable to adapt to the pace of change driven by our client. Following investment into the business by a lower midmarket fund a number of years ago, the business has focused on building a high calibre team and infrastructure giving it a scalable platform that can capitalise on the opportunity that exists to consolidate the fragmented sector in which it operates. In order to do this, the business is looking to appoint a high calibre CEO who can guide the business through its next stage of growth and lead the business through an exit for the shareholders in the next 12 – 24 months. An IPO is a potential exit route for the business.

We are looking for a proven retailer either as MD/CEO or a Multi-channel/E-Commerce Director with Board experience, who can bring strong leadership in order to scale the business effectively. This is a hands-on role where you will be involved in all areas of the business working with a small but growing team to continue the rapid growth, maintaining the entrepreneurial culture and passion within the business and delivering a significant return for the shareholders of which you will share in the wealth creation opportunity. We are looking for someone who has the structured training of a larger retailer/e-tailer but has had exposure to a sub £100M turnover entrepreneurial business ideally. This person must be a real team player who can work effectively at all levels within the business with strong leadership and people development skills. A track record in Private Equity is a preference not a pre-requisite.
