Very Group appoints new marketing chief

Very Group's Jessica Myers

Online retail giant The Very Group has appointed Jessica Myers as chief marketing officer.

The group operates digital retail brands including Very and Littlewoods and has an annual revenue of £2.3bn.

Myers, who will assume her new post on October 3, joins Very from Metro Bank, where she built and led the company’s first ever brand and marketing function and was a member of the executive committee. She has also held brand and marketing positions for banks including Natwest Group and Australia’s Commonwealth Bank of Australia.

In 2021, she was recognised in Marketing Week’s top 100 most effective marketers in the UK and selected for a 2022 EMEA Fellowship for The Marketing Academy.

At Very, Jessica will lead a team of people across brand, marketing, public relations and creative to continue to effectively position the digital retailer as an online destination of choice for UK and Irish shoppers.

Robbie Feather, managing director, retail at The Very Group, said: “Jessica is exactly the right person to lead our marketing team at a time when UK families are increasingly on the lookout for the convenience, flexibility and value Very provides.”

Myers added: “It’s a fantastic time to join one of the most recognisable digital retailers in the UK. It has a strong and differentiated brand, a hugely relevant customer proposition combining multicategory shopping with flexible ways to pay, and amazing opportunities for growth. I can’t wait to meet the team and start making a difference for Very and our customers.”
