It's with great pleasure that we introduce Mark Capps to our team. Mark joins us after spending 6 years at Google working in various sales strategy roles, a year at Virgin Money, a year as a volunteer with Technoserve in Africa and 2 years at McKinsey & Company. Mark studied Engineering, Economics and Management and Oxford University.
Mike and I spent some time working with Mark while we were at Google and he was nothing other than extremely impressive. In his time at Google he was promoted very quickly through the sales team and sat a number of rungs ahead of where Mike and I were. He brings some very impressive skills to our team.
In addition Jodie and I have been good friends with Mark and his wife Allegra for a number of years. They're both incredibly nice, generous and impressive people and share a similar set of values to us, so Mark makes an excellent cultural fit with us.
Mark is joining us as a Co-Founder and CEO of a new online retail venture we've been exploring. We're not quite ready to announce it publicly yet but we will do so on this blog over the coming month or too. In the meantime Mark is going to join us as an author on this blog sharing his experiences moving from the corporate world into the entrepreneurial/online retail space.
We're very excited to have Mark on board, please join us in welcoming him to the team!
