NotOnTheHighStreet appoints Tesco's Simon Belsham as CEO

Due to take up his new role in May, Belsham is managing director of grocery home shopping for Tesco.com, having worked at the supermarket for just over two years. His previous roles also include a stint at Ocado.

Holly Tucker MBE, co-founder and president of Notonthehighstreet.com, said: “We are thrilled that Simon has agreed to join us. He is an online retail and e-commerce expert and will bring great experience and energy to the role.

“Simon’s entrepreneurial background and commitment to SMEs will fit well with the ethos and ambitions we have developed at Notonthehighstreet.com.“

Founded in 2006 by Tucker and Sophie Cornish, Notonthehighstreet had a turnover of £127 million in 2014. Over the Christmas trading period sales grew by 36% year-on-year and the number of customers topped 3 million last year. The marketplace said it is signing up new small business partners at a rate of 100 per month.

Belsham added: “Like many others with an interest in retail and e-commerce I have watched the company’s growing success with considerable admiration and I am looking forward to joining this dynamic and pioneering company and working closely with our community of partners.”
