Current Location

London, UK

Emily is available for work

With 10+ years of working for global enterprise businesses, I launched IN FRONT OF LTD (infrontof.co.uk) to offer my own market-leading advisory and consultancy service.

I have had the pleasure of working for Multi-vertical, Fashion, E-commerce and Marketplace businesses such as Arcadia, SMCP, Harvey Nichols, eBay and most recently the British Fashion Council.

My career has successfully revolved around developing and driving new business, acquiring seller and merchant trade, networking and consultative selling to close deals.

I have achieved several accolades through personal acquisition of large fashion brands onto major marketplaces and signed hundreds of brands and sellers from Capri Holdings to The Estée Lauder Group. In 2021 I successfully grew GMV for eBay fashion by 267% in under 10 months resulting in a multi-million, eight-figure turnover.

I am currently growing a diverse portfolio of clients for The British Fashion Council as Head of Commercial Network. This is to achieve their dream seven-figure annual run-rate for Patrons which has never been achieved before.
