Nimble is delighted to announce that it has welcomed CEO of Little Dish, Dean Brown, as its new Chairman, in a significant move for the child-friendly brand, well-known for its ethical cleaning solutions.
Following a distinguished career in grocery retail, from Tesco and Waitrose to the huge success he has experienced scaling and exiting Little Dish, Dean will bring an unrivalled knowledge and experience to the business.
Speaking about the news, Nimble Founder and chemist Von Sy, said: “To have found a chairman who truly understands FMCG and Retail, as well as the nursery sector, who can help me grow and scale Nimble, is of major significance to the business. Dean has already supported me so much, connecting us to industry experts, advising me on tricky business challenges, helping me build a bigger operations team and guiding me through a successful launch into Tesco last year.”
The strategic appointment follows the recent announcement that Justin King CBE, the former CEO of Sainsbury’s, has joined Nimble as an advisor and mentor. Dean’s involvement, like Justin’s, is a true sign of success for Nimble; the endorsement from two high-calibre industry experts certainly demonstrates their confidence in the fast-growing business.
The news also comes as the brand is nearing the end of a hugely successful crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube, which ends on the 21st March. At the last count the business has raised £228,820 from 336 investors, a considerable uplift from the original £200,000 target. The injection of funds will be used to scale up the business and invest in further product development, supporting ambitious growth plans both online and in retail.
Von added: “This is certainly the busiest time of Nimble’s 6 years so far. With such fantastic growth and ongoing development, as well as the recent crowdfunding it’s a truly exciting time for the business. I am extremely proud to have secured two outstanding appointments in Dean and Justin and I look forward to utilising their wealth of experience to benefit the whole business. It means that I can fast track Nimble’s growth as I use their expertise to make better and faster decisions.”
Dean Brown has said he is thrilled to be joining Nimble at such an exciting time: “When first speaking with Von about Nimble and the success and rapid growth of the business, I knew it was a company I would be delighted to work with. I’m looking forward to working together with the team and supporting the ongoing growth of the business.”
