Jacobson Group makes changes in London office
The Jacobson Group has appointed Victoria Dunlop as key account manager to spearhead changes within its London office. The facility was originally opened in 2010 as a design hub, but Ms Dunlop’s appointment and a new internal structure will see its function reworked to incorporate design and development teams. According to the Jacobson Group, this represents significant investment, and the new structure is expected to streamline the company’s made-to-
order fashion business.
Ms Dunlop has a wealth of experience in the footwear industry, having spent 13 years with Li & Fung, where she was category manager. Prior to this, she worked with Pentland Brands and River Island.
Jacobson Group is a major player in the footwear industry. It owns a number of footwear brands, including Gola, Ravel, Lotus and Frank Wright, while also operating a high street own label supply business.
