Fashion distribution business Brand Mrkt has appointed a new key account manager to represent Spanx in the UK and Ireland.
Sophia Pizzey joins the company from UK agency Elite Swim, where she worked as a sales and PR executive for just over two years.
There, she introduced swimwear brands including Aguaclara, Baku, Ginja, Hurley and PHAX to key UK retailers, including Asos, Simply Beach and John Lewis and House of Fraser.
Commenting on her new role, she said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to join Brand Mrkt and be working with such a talented team. We have a strong portfolio of brands and some very exciting prospects in the pipeline.”
Brand Mrkt is a lingerie, loungewear, swimwear and hosiery distributor operating in the UK, Ireland and Nordic countries.
It distributes several of the world’s most desired premium brands such as Stella McCartney Lingerie, MICHAEL Michael Kors Swim and Hanro.
Brand Mrkt established its headquarters in Stockholm in 2005 before launching its London office, headed up by Abigayle Akinpelumil, a former national account manager for Wacoal Eveden, last year.
The UK office initially launched with US brands Hanky Panky and PJ Salvage before adding Spanx to its portfolio in July.
