Having led the company for the last seven years, including through its successful IPO earlier this year, Adam Frisby, Founder and CEO of the Group, has taken the decision to become Chief Brand Officer, a newly created Board level Executive Director role with responsibility for developing the Group's influencer partnerships and the brand's creative direction.
