Richard Brendon has announced the appointment of Nell Dodge as commercial director.
A seasoned sales and business development executive, Nell joins Richard Brendon with over 15 years of experience in the design industry and was a key part of the Chilewich team (in operations and then sales) during significant growth of the company. She also consulted with the renowned brand Mud Australia at their factory in Sydney.
“I am thrilled that Nell will be joining the team. I’ve known Nell since I launched my brand, I first met her at London Design Festival in 2013. Nell worked with us as a consultant in 2018 and early 2019 while we were going through a period of particularly rapid growth following the launch of our Jancis Robinson Collection,” said founder Richard Brendon. “The team and I are excited to work with Nell again and we know from past experience that Nell will really help to drive the business forward. Nell will bring energy, determination and a wealth of experience to the team.”
Nells adds: “I have admired Richard’s products and his vision, both creatively and commercially, since I came across the brand in 2013. Even while taking a pause from the design industry to have twins, we kept in touch and I was energized to hear about his plans for growth and brand expansion. We have ambitious goals with a talented team in place. I am thrilled to have this opportunity to help lead this terrific organization to further success.”
