Successful UK male grooming brand, Men Rock, has appointed ex-Streetcar co-founder, Brett Akker, as a Non-Executive Director.
He will join the board with immediate effect.
He said: “I am genuinely excited to be joining Men Rock at such an exciting time in the company’s development.
“I look forward to working with founder Paul Johnson and his team, to build on Men Rock’s success across the UK. It’s remarkable how quickly the company has grown in just eleven months, which bodes very well for the company’s imminent expansion into the US and other overseas markets.”
Brett Akker is a high profile and successful entrepreneur, most noted for his development of Streetcar, the innovative, pay-as-you-go UK car club which has since been sold to its American counterpart, Zipcar. His current interests include Lovespace where he is Chairman, Chargifi – where he is a Non-Executive Director and numerous other early stage businesses where he acts as an advisor.
Paul Johnson, Men Rock’s CEO, added: “We are delighted and privileged to have Brett on board – his vast and very successful entrepreneurial experience will be a huge asset to our team, particularly as we expand both our product range and our international distribution network to include the US and additional areas across mainland Europe.”
Men Rock’s range of traditional shaving and male grooming products are currently available across a range of on and offline UK retail outlets. The brand is also represented in Denmark and Holland.
