Sosandar, the online women’s fashion brand, has announced the appointment of Steve Dilks to the company’s board as chief financial officer.
Dilks joined Sosandar in September 2020 as a finance director, after spending 11 years with Regatta, the outdoor apparel business.
In addition, following his appointment to the board, Mark Collingbourne, group finance director, will transition to the position of non-executive director with “immediate effect”.
Bill Murray, non-executive chairman of the group said that he was “very pleased” to welcome Dilks to the board.
He said: “He hit the ground running as soon as he joined last year and, since then, his experience and expertise have added significant value to the business. As finance director and now as CFO, Steve provides great confidence to the board, offers substantial commercial contributions and is proving to be a great asset to the business.”
Sosandar was launched in September 2016 by Ali Hall and Julie Lavington, who previously launched and ran high street fashion magazine Look, as editor and publishing director respectively.
The group creates clothing for “fashion-conscious women” who have “graduated” from “throwaway fashion”.
