Hackett hires Lyle & Scott’s Oliver Strickland to head up UK sales

Hackett has appointed former Lyle & Scott international sales manager Oliver Strickland to head up its UK and Ireland wholesale arm.

Strickland will be responsible for building the brand’s stockists, which include German etailer Zalando, John Lewis and Jules B. Strickland started the role this month and reports into UK and international markets sales director Chris Wightman. 

Strickland has built up a wealth of experience across a number of menswear brands during his 15-year career in fashion.

Before joining Lyle & Scott, he was country manager for UK and Ireland for J Lindeberg. He has also worked as head of sales at Gant and sales manager at Duchamp. Other previous employers include Burberry and Diesel.

Lyle & Scott confirmed that head of sales for sportswear Michael Benjamin has assumed responsibility for international.

Pepe Jeans Group-owned Hackett recently revealed its full-year figure for the year ended March 31, with sales up 8.7% to €165m (£150m).The brand attributed to growth in both its retail and wholesale businesses.

Retail sales increased by 10% during the period, driven by the first full year of trading from its global flagship on Regent Street in London, as well as a flurry of new stores in the City, and expansion overseas in Lisbon, Amsterdam and Mexico.
