Naked Wines appoints UK managing director
Naked Wines has appointed James Crawford as managing director of its UK business.
Currently chief financial officer of Naked, he has been managing the UK business on an interim basis since November 2019 when the previous incumbent moved to the newly created role of global director of wine.
Nick Devlin, Naked Wines group chief executive, said: “In his long standing role as CFO of Naked, James has guided the business through start-up challenges and along its rapid growth trajectory. Under his tenure the Naked business has grown 4x in size, demonstrated its potential in the US market and navigated the challenges of transition to a listed environment.
“As James moves on from the CFO role Naked has never been in better shape; with a strong balance sheet and lean, asset light model ideally positioning us to take advantage of the opportunity to invest in growth through uncertain times.”
Naked has now begun a search for Crawford’s successor. Once a new chief financial officer has been appointed, he will step down from the Naked board.
