Oki-Ni buyer Tim Sturmheit is to depart the etailer to join premium fashion sales agency Tomorrow.
Sturmheit spent four years as buyer at Oki-Ni, having joined from Paul Smith where he was supervisor. Sturmheit will step down from his role next month. Oki-Ni confirmed that the retailer is currently recruiting to replace Sturmheit.
Sturmheit will join Tomorrow, which represents brands such as Derek Lam, House of Hackney and Rebecca Minkoff, as senior sales manager and will be responsible for sales, brand acquisition and brand development. Starting on November 3, Sturmheit will report into chief executive Stefano Martinetto.
Oki-Ni was founded in 2001 and sells premium and designer brands such as Acne, Lanvin and Christopher Kane.
Last year the premium etailer was acquired by menswear ecommerce and media group MenInvest. As part of the deal, Oki-Ni co-founders Ben Banks and Charles Perez became shareholders and advisers of the MenInvest group.
