Nick Devlin, Group CEO, commented: “I’m delighted that Shawn will be joining Naked and am excited about partnering with him to deliver the next stage in Naked’s growth. Shawn’s deep understanding of driving growth through a focus on customer economics and cohorts makes him ideally suited to the role at Naked. Additionally, his understanding of the US market will be highly valuable and recruiting this role in the USA, our largest market, is another key step in our transition from British start-up to a US-led global pureplay”.

Shawn Tabak, incoming Group CFO, commented: “I’m delighted to join the team at Naked Wines, a company that’s disrupting the wine industry for the benefit of consumers and independent winemakers. This is an exciting time as the company’s differentiated business delivers superior value to wine consumers in a large and growing online wine market, and I look forward to working with this strong team to create value for customers, employees, and shareholders.”
