‘I am delighted to welcome Matthew to Amara. The role of cto is the final position we needed to fill and to maintain the high double-digit growth we are still experiencing. Matthew brings comprehensive knowledge and experience and will undoubtedly shape our technology strategy over the coming years,’ says Andrew Hood, Amara ceo and co-founder.

Last month the retailer recruited Mark Higgins as chief operations officer.
