Drayton Partners have recently partnered with D3O, an industry leading and highly innovative British based company. The business specialises in working with global consumer brands and suppliers, providing ′impact protection′ solutions, originally centred around a unique shock absorbing material. Drayton Partners led a successful global search process for two business critical roles, one based in Europe the other in North America.
Wayne Mabbott, who leads Drayton Partner′s Sportswear and Fashion business, commented:
"It has been a pleasure to work with the D3O team. It is a fascinating company, with such a broad reach within consumer goods; from performance footwear, industrial workwear, outdoor action sports, motorcycle apparel and even electronic equipment protection. They have a truly innovative product that enhances performance and provides solutions for brands across the world. I am looking forward to building an on-going relationship with them, helping to identify the type of outstanding talent that will ensure the company achieves its huge potential.
Our understanding of the wider sector landscape made the difference to the search. We were able to source two individuals with real specialism by leveraging our industry network in North America, and also more locally in Europe”.
D3O is a private-equity owned business, based in the UK.
