Current Location

Rory is available for work

A Key Account Manager with extensive Wholesale and Retail experience earned over 20+ years working in Men's Fashion. An enthusiastic, affable and socially outgoing personality with a driven and honest work ethic, somebody who thrives in the communal work place but is also an independent thinker, strong willed and empathetic to colleagues and customers alike.

"Raised" on the shop-floor, i worked in my family owned Independent retail stores from 16 to 31 working my way from stockroom assistant to General Manger in those years. My roles included, but were not limited to, Store Manger, Buyer, E-comm Manager and Stock Controller and mostly all at the same time. In this time we operated 3 stores including 2 G-Star Raw franchises.

At 31 i decided to embark on new adventure in London. With this came a career realignment and a move into Wholesale working for 2 iconic British brands. Using the skills and lessons learnt in Retail and applying them to a Wholesale prism has allowed me to develop a rare and valuable ability to see and understand the overall picture from many angles. I believe this has helped me develop strong relationships and understanding with customers and co-workers and bring a unique point of view to my role.

I am hugely interested in product development and helping to implement innovative strategies to develop business beyond the classic supply & demand servicing. I am keen to be involved and support business' to explore more sustainable and altruistic ways of working and ultimately aiming to make the world a better place one Menswear piece at a time.
