Ed Grigg

General Manager

Ed

Ed Grigg aka ‘Top Cat’… animations most memorable alley cat in a waistcoat.

If you are looking to win over Ed you can’t go wrong with a cup of earl grey and a slice of toast, failing that, ply him with coffee.

An active member of his local hockey team he was inspired to coach, nothing to do with his age at all however he does claim to have been in the industry for nearly 30 years yet we only celebrated his 30th birthday 5 years ago.

If things didn’t add up before, Ed brought his first mobile phone at the age of 27 with terrible call coverage but there was an excellent game.. something called Snake?!

Ed can be found on a Friday night rein acting the moves from the Talking heads video Once in a life time with his favourite red wine tipple.

 

Sharon Archer

Head of Key Accounts

Sharon

Like a true Pisces, Sharon is musical to the core with her love for musical theatre and a Disney enthusiast. If you find Sharon low on energy or bogged down in meetings you can either give her a packet of crisps or play George Michael on full blast to bring her back to her enthusiastic self.

Sharon has been in the industry for 20 (something) years of which she has spent over 7 with ICW.

Sharon leaves ‘no man behind’ when it comes to leading her team, unfortunately she does leave a trail of over 6 empty tea cups.

Please be aware: Sharon has an impeccable memory when it comes to remembering registration plates so never park too close. Also great office fun when we play the Mastermind specialist subject round solely on car registrations (quiz master: John Toombs).

Joe Barton

Head of Supply Chain Management

Joe

The Michelangelo of Incorporatewear, not the famous painter or poet, the ninja turtle. Closely related to the ninja turtle in their love for pizza, jokester nature and adventurous ways. Joe can be found practising martial arts, playing football and recovering from triathlons.

14 years in the industry is not for the faint hearted, Joe finds down time relaxing in front of the television indulging in burgers and watching UFC (mixed martial arts).

Joe is straight to the point, much like his favourite song by Blur- Song 2, only 2 minutes and 2 seconds long.

John Tombs

Head of Warehouse and Logistics

John

A logistical force not to be reckoned with, he runs on the finest Columbian coffee throughout the day and often to the beat of Piano House music. His childhood hero Wyle E Coyote has coached him through his extensive career describing himself as ‘tenacious, inventive and not giving up even when he should…’

John is a Libra and believes in balance, this is why he can’t wait for his son to become a professional football player so he can be compensated for every weekend come rain or shine he has spent on the side line supporting him. However we cannot offer too much sympathy, John also plans on using his expert quizzing knowledge to enter a TV show to fly off to a 5* resort!

If John was shipped off to a desert island he would take his luxury item of… eggs, as he cannot live without them and possibly a Birmingham City Football scarf if it’s not too hot.

Ian Poole

Head of Finance

Ian

The accountant by day, Vimto enthusiast by night, (2.5litres to be exact). Joining our team today, Ian brings with him 10 years of experience as a qualified accountant, however this is the first time enters the clothing industry.

We are very excited to work with Ian, we now know his weak points are Fish and Chips along with pork scratchings. Good to know as he cannot be bribed with cups of tea or coffee.

Ian enjoys hill walking, once completing the 3 peaks challenge raising £20,000 for charity. It has been said that you could hear his rendition of Queens ‘We are the champions’ from the top of each peak…

Tom Quinn

Head of IT

Tom

Tom Quinn the self-proclaimed 60 year old stuck in a 30 year olds body or so he says. After a recent survey it turns our Tom can be found indulging in nineties rave music, especially happy hardcore, (we don’t judge).

As a mature student in his spare time, father of two and second dog soon to be introduced into the mix; there isn’t a time you won’t find Tom without a hot cup of Joe in his hands.

Proud eater of at least a 110grams of chocolate a day, although claiming to be a committed to Galaxy classic if you catch Tom on his wild side you will see him tucking into a galaxy cookie crumble.  Luckily these calories will be all burnt off playing golf whilst blaring out  DJ Paul Elstak.

Pedro Nogueira

National Manager

Pedro

Pedro is the newest member to the senior leadership team, a Enduro enthusiast (motorcycle sport). Bringing with him over 20 years of experience and a whole lot of laughter and spirit. If Pedro is not enjoying the Porto sunshine he can be found at his favourite steakhouse with his very talented son who trains relentlessly  in gymnastics.

Pedro entered the technology era at 26 with his first mobile phone, needless to say making it easier to spread his joyful cheer, or bad jokes?

We can’t wait to start working with Pedro, we are also excited to hear his rendition of U2- It’s a beautiful day.
