“The Retail Trust is the only organisation that provides support and advice for one of the biggest employers of people in the UK…retail. There has never been a time more important than now for retailers to engage with the Trust. As ambassadors, we have a role to play to clearly demonstrate the role of the Trust and how this can help and support both employees and employers.”

Karl started in retail at the age of 16 at M&S and over time became a senior leader working in retail over the last 35 years. Have worked for the big GM retailers like M&S and Next along with a pure play at The Very Group, specialists at Mothercare and now brands at Reiss.

“I have overseen all commercial aspects of the businesses I have worked in and in an ever-changing world of digitalisation the role today is very different to that of old.”
