My guest today is Reece Wabara, CEO of Manière De Voir - former professional footballer turned e-commerce powerhouse. West Midlands born Reece began his career playing for Manchester City in the Under 16s team and went on to play for the England U21 squad before a strategic pivot into the fashion industry.
MDV, the design-driven brand founded by Reece in 2013 has gone on to see incredible growth, listed in the most recent Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100, and with 187% year on year increase in net revenue, worn by stars from Raheem Sterling to Anthony Joshua. Reece is vocal online about his views on strategy and leadership, and I’m very excited to have him here today to delve deeper into what got him here.
