Not On The High Street names Leanne Rothwell CEO

As it relaunches with a refreshed brand image, Not On The High Street has announced Leanne Rothwell as its new CEO.

She’s been with the business for 10 years, starting as Head of Account Management in 2012. And she’s overseen the growth of the partner base from 1,000 to over 5,000 sellers, leading all of Not On The High Street’s commercial efforts.

She said the company “has been a huge part of my life for the last 10 years and I’m honoured to move into the CEO role. Our new brand, launching today, and extensive selection will continue to broaden our appeal, attracting a wider audience to our vibrant and passionate community of partners”.

Davenport, who led the business through one of retail’s toughest ever periods due to the pandemic, has modernised the tech and data platform and spearheaded a strategy to target additional customer segments with a reinvigorated brand that launches Thursday.

She said: “It’s been a privilege to lead such a unique brand over the past three years. I’ve been humbled by the many small businesses who rely on our marketplace for growth and watched in awe as some have evolved from fledgling ideas to multi-million pound entities. I leave the company with an exciting new chapter ahead and I’m delighted to see Leanne take the helm and continue to drive the business forward.”
