Jamie Tunnicliffe has been appointed chief executive of sailing brand Gill, after managing director John Deverill announced his retirement after almost two decades in the role.
Tunnicliffe spent 16 years at Nike and Adidas, and most recently was sales and marketing director at John Smedley from June 2009 to February 2015.
“This is an exciting time to join Gill,” said Tunnicliffe. “For 19 years, John Deverill has led Gill to be the consistent, profitable business it is today. The platform is now set for Gill to achieve significant international expansion, to have a compelling online presence, and ultimately to become the leading technical sailing apparel brand in the world.”
