One True Saxon hunts for boss after office relocation

Young fashion brand One True Saxon is hunting for a managing director after relocating its offices to the London location of its parent company Pentland Brands.

The relocation has prompted the departure of the brand’s co-founder Mark Bailey, who was its sales director, which has led to a restructure to create the new position of managing director. The incoming managing director will take over some of Bailey’s responsibilities and will report to Daniel Morris, a managing director at Pentland Brands who also has responsibility for Boxfresh. A sales executive will also be hired.

According to Pentland Brands, which bought One True Saxon in 2006, Bailey is pursuing a new career in Nottingham, where One True Saxon was based prior to the move.

Product manager Charlie Downes-Jackson will remain with the business following its move to Finchley in north London, and the production team has been expanded with the appointment of Isobelle Rudman as creative product developer. One True Saxon is also looking to bolster its design team by recruiting more designers.

Morris said: “The brand has been going for 10 years and after [co-]founder Ian Bergin left earlier this year, we thought it would be the right time and a great opportunity to bring the brand properly into the Pentland fold,” said Morris.

“Some of the real benefits will be using the back office systems but also to take better advantage of Pentland’s marketing capabilities and other global opportunities. It’s also easier to recruit good people in London.”

  • How patronising can you get with that last comment. Presumably One True Saxon won't supply anyone north of Watford because they're simply not "good people"
