Loaf appoints chief operating officer

Having previously worked for 17 years at Boden, most recently as director of merchandise planning and systems, Barley’s new role at Loaf will include responsibility for the day-to-day running of the business. He will also oversee logistics and warehousing operations as the company aims to double its turnover in the coming years.

Charlie Marshall, founder and chief executive of Loaf, said: ‘I am delighted to have Neil on board. He joins armed with a wealth of experience having seen it all at Boden, a company that has achieved tremendous growth over the past decade. He has a strong track record of helping businesses deliver fast, profitable growth, and he shares our passion to deliver an outstanding experience for our customers. We’ve got big plans in store and I can’t wait for him to get stuck in.’

Founded in 2008, Loaf’s turnover was £34 million in the 2016/2017 financial year. Having opened three showrooms in London, Loaf is now aiming to open a further 11 showrooms across the UK.
