Managing Director, Oh Polly
I am a workaholic who is strongly motivated by success and using that success to help others.
In 2015 I co-founded the UK online women’s fashion retailer Oh Polly (www.ohpolly.com) which operates in the ladies fast fashion market. Our website, which launched in November 2015 had 50 million visitors in 2020. In 2020, I co-founded the UK athleisurewear brand Bo+Tee (www.boandtee.com) which creates trendy figure-hugging, form-fitting gym and leisurewear. Bo+Tee has already hit 8 figure revenues in its first 12 months of trading.
In 2011 I co-founded a charity in Cambodia, now called The Brannerson Foundation (SC042175). This private charity aims to alleviate poverty from some of the poorest families in Siem Reap Cambodia and also provide free education for over 400 children in Trey Nhoar province. In addition we support several young people through advanced learning through a University scholarship program. To date, my businesses have provided over £600k in donations to the foundation plus a further £150k to other worthwhile causes.
- I hold a PhD in Engineering.
- I was voted the National “Scale-Up Entrepreneur of the Year 2020” in the Great British Entrepreneur Awards and the “Creative Industries Entrepreneur of the Year 2020” for Scotland and Northern Ireland.
- I employ over 1,000 people around the globe in the UK, US, Cambodia, Bangladesh and China.
