I joined GS1 UK earlier this year, my role is focused on using GS1 Global standards to help members and marketplaces solve industry wide problems. GS1 as a neutral, not for profit is uniquely situated to engage with and bring key industries together. My background is in retail having worked for global retailers Arcadia, and Ralph Lauren and more recently within the marketplace space at Ankorstore, a high growth B2B start up. My remit mostly focused on retailer acquisition and enabling cross boarder trade. Outside of work I am amateur painter, traveller and proud owner of a puppy.
