Who we are

Tom McIlvenny
Managing Director

After leaving Leeds Metropolitan University with a 2.1 degree in Finance & Accountancy I took the decision to launch a start-up e-commerce business in the sports fashion market. My business model was to grow an online shop firstly on eBay to the point where it made economic sense to outsource warehousing and order fulfilment. The next stage was to develop a sales channel on Amazon and also to develop an independent website for premium brands. The business has grown rapidly over the first two years and is now in the position to recruit a small specialist team to fully maximise the online retail potential for our website.
