British adventure clothing brand Shackleton has appointed five new shareholder advisers after completing an investment round for an undisclosed amount.
Incoming investors include musician Guy Berryman, former Burberry chief operating officer John Smith, sports and lifestyle sector lawyer, Nic Couchman, technology entrepreneur and investor Jon Claydon, and chairman of TEDx Vancouver Chris Dyer.
The new investors join existing shareholders including Alexandra Shackleton, granddaughter of Sir Ernest Shackleton, the polar explorer that inspired the brand.
Co-founders Ian Holdcroft and Martin Brooks said: “Since establishing the brand in 2015, Shackleton has grown remarkably by combining expedition-grade performance with luxury styling and materials.
“We have ambitious plans for growth into new sectors and territories and with this team we’re confident we’ll get there.”
