Naked Wines appoints non-executive director
Naked Wines has appointed Darryl Rawlings as a non-executive director.
Having joined the retailer’s board, he will also succeed Ian Harding as Naked Wines’ chairman at its AGM in August.
Harding had previously announced his intention to retire this summer after serving on the board for eight years.
Rawlings is the founder and chief executive of Trupanion, the direct-to-consumer monthly subscription business that provides medical insurance for cats and dogs throughout the US and Canada. The company generated $500 million in revenue in 2020 and now serves more than 860,000 enrolled pets.
Harding said: “We have conducted an extensive search process and I am delighted that Darryl has agreed to join Naked Wines at such an important moment in our growth journey. The group has evolved beyond all recognition over the last five years – from a UK-orientated store-based retailer, into a fast growing and agile DtC subscription business with an entrepreneurial culture and strong focus on its huge US growth opportunity. Darryl’s appointment adds valuable skills and experience, and a further US focus to the team.”
