Made chief executive steps down
Made.com chief executive Philippe Chainieux has stepped down from his role due to family reasons.
Chainieux joined Made in 2013 as managing director and was promoted to the position of chief executive in 2017.
Today, he said in a statement: “It is with sadness I have to pause my professional activities to take care of my family. I am incredibly grateful to have been part of the fantastic success story of Made and I am very proud of what has been achieved over the last nine years.”
Meanwhile, Made chief operating officer Nicola Thompson will assume the chief executive role on an interim basis, while working closely alongside chief financial officer Adrian Evans. With over 20 years’ retail experience, she has been in post since September 2019 and has been integral to the formulation of the company’s strategy.
Susanne Given, chair of Made, said: “I would like to thank Philippe for his dedication and hard work over the last nine years, during which he and the Made team have built this exciting, unique and successful digital consumer business. In 2021 we delivered record revenues and finished the year in a strong financial position. It is with sadness and understanding that the board accepts Philippe’s resignation and we wish him and his family well for the future.
“Nicola is an exceptional colleague and impressive leader, and the board and I look forward to continuing to work with her, alongside Adrian and the rest of the leadership team.”
Made also said that its financial results for the year to 31 December 2021 remain in line with the expectations.
