Hush appoints Sarah Miles as chief executive
Hush, the fast-growing fashion lifestyle brand, has appointed Sarah Miles as its new chief executive.
She was previously chief executive of Feelunique where she led the team that grew revenues to more than £100 million before the company’s acquisition by Sephora last year.
Prior to that, she spent five years at Amazon where she ran its apparel business across Europe. She also worked with drinks company Diageo for 12 years where her roles included managing director, Diageo Wines Europe, and managing director, Reserve Brands.
Susanne Given, chair of Hush, said: “Sarah has an outstanding track record across some of the world’s leading consumer businesses and I have no doubt Hush will continue to thrive under her leadership. Sarah brings not only vast experience of driving strategic growth across several great retailers, but also a broad international perspective and a deep passion for sustainability and purpose-led brands.”
Miles will take over from Kate Bartman who will return to her previous role of chief trading officer after overseeing a significant period of transformation over the last two years. This included increasing the brand’s customer base by more than 50%.
Given added: “I’d like to place on record my sincere thanks to Kate for her contributions during what has been a pivotal period for the business. During her time as CEO, Hush has made excellent progress against its growth strategy, including putting in place the team and infrastructure for continued success. Having stepped back as CEO, we are delighted that Kate will remain part of Hush’s leadership team as the business focusses on delivering the next chapters of its growth underpinned by providing customers with a great, sustainability-led brand experience.”
