South West online retailer announces new CEO
Construction Materials Online (CMO), one of the UK’s leading online retailers based in Plymouth, has appointed Andy Dunkley as its new chief executive officer.
Dunkley will be responsible for driving and continuing CMO’s strategic growth across markets, following a £8.6 million investment from capital market company, Key Capital Partners (KCP) last year.
In his previous role as Group Chief Operating Officer at Sun Capital Partners, Dunkley worked with a variety of organisations, ranging from £50 million – £500 million in turnover, helping to drive continued business growth and performance across changing markets, primarily using eCommerce.
Commenting on his appointment, Dunkley said: “As an innovative online company which has already experienced exponential growth, it is fantastic to be joining the CMO team. CMO has quickly evolved to become one of the UK’s most trusted and agile online businesses, and I look forward to working with the team and helping to guide it through its next stage of strategic growth.
“I will be using my experience of working with some of the world’s most innovative, high profile brands and businesses to continue CMO’s success, reaching new customers and markets by taking advantage of the limitless opportunities presented by eCommerce.”
Prior to this from 2008 – 2016, Dunkley held the position of CEO at Europe’s leading denim brand, Lee Cooper. During his time as CEO he led the company’s transition from a jeans wholesaler to a globally recognised lifestyle brand, tripling its turnover to more than $500 million.
