Silicon Valley and Ted Baker appointments for Manchester menswear brand

Ted Baker’s former Global Creative Director has joined Manchester-based menswear brand, Blake Mill.

Anthony Cuthbertson is one of a number of new appointments to the brand’s advisory board. Having previously held roles at TopShop and Roberto Cavalli, Cuthbertson’s brief is to drive the company’s “creative trajectory” as it seeks to widen its customer base.

Blake Mill has also recruited Ken Hoang, a Silicon Valley veteran with “a rich history in identifying and leveraging market changing technologies.” Hoang holds a number of patents in data management and visualisation and he’ll be using tech insights to help its expansion strategy.

The third new arrival is Samy Zekhout, the current CFO of European frozen foods company, Nomad Foods, and former divisional CFO of Procter & Gamble.

“The advisory board’s formation propels Blake Mill from a UK-focused brand to a global fashion enterprise,” said co-founder Ken Price.

“Through their combined expertise, Blake Mill looks forward to engaging the international market and continuing their legacy of ‘empowering men to dare to dress differently”.

The company was founded in 2018 by Steve French, Ken Price and Ross French.
