Menswear brand house Douglas and Grahame has added to its board as it looks to grow the business.
Douglas and Grahame, which produces clothing under a number of leading menswear brands including Douglas, Remus Uomo and Wellington, has appointed brand manager Adam Finlay, son of managing director Donald Finlay to the board, with responsibility to head up the outerwear product division and the development of its brand portfolio.
The company, headquartered in Carrickfergus in County Antrim, has also hired Andrew Lowden as business development director.
Lowden joins from specialist workwear firm Cooneen, where he was managing director. Lowden, who has held roles with companies including Coats Viyella and Glenaden Shirts, will oversee the further development of the company’s retail, wholesale and export strategies. He will take up the position next month.
Donald Finlay said: “As the sector recovers from the financial crisis, we felt it was right to take the necessary steps to bolster our internal resources and the company’s expertise to help us drive sustained growth for the future.
“Our new directors will complement our other recent senior management team appointments in sales and marketing to add even greater focus and wider industry experience to our company.”
