Ex-Vodafone boss joins fashion brand Jack Wills, sparking sale or float speculation

Hot young fashion brand Jack Wills has appointed a former Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse executive to its board, igniting speculation that the business may be preparing for a sale or float next year.
Wendy Becker, Vodafone group marketing chief until last year, is also a non-executive at Ocado and Whitbread.
She will be joining Jack Wills in an ‘operational role’.

Jack Wills declined to comment, but a source said: ‘Peter Williams, the founder and chief executive, is remaining in his role and Wendy will join the board in an operational position this autumn.’

The already powerful board includes former Burberry chief executive Rose Marie Bravo, credited with making the brand a global success, and former Ralph Lauren senior vice-president James Hardy, who is president of the US operation.
Jack Wills already has stores in Britain, many in university towns, 12 stores in America and two in Hong Kong.

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
