Dr. Martens appoints new chief financial officer

Footwear brand Dr. Martens has appointed Giles Wilson as chief financial officer.

Due to join the company in 2024 on a date to be confirmed, Wilson has been working in the same role at global spirits company William Grant & Sons since 2020. Prior to that, he was chief financial officer at John Menzies and subsequently became the company’s chief executive.

Paul Mason, chair of Dr. Martens, said: “Following a rigorous selection process, we are delighted to appoint Giles as CFO. He is a very capable finance leader with extensive experience in a number of sectors and, most recently, his time in the branded spirits industry has given him a good grounding in global brands and wholesale distribution management. His knowledge of the public markets will be a valuable asset to the team as Dr. Martens continues its growth in the listed environment.”

Kenny Wilson, Dr. Martens chief executive added: “I am thrilled that Giles will be joining the leadership team and the board. He brings a range of complementary skills and past experience that is highly relevant to our brand-first strategy. I am looking forward to working with him on the next phase of Dr. Martens’ journey to become a £2 billion revenue footwear brand.”

Wilson will succeed Jon Mortimore who is retiring from the company as previously announced and will remain in his role until the end of Dr. Martens’ financial year.
