Luxury London retailer Browns has announced a series of promotions and appointments within its buying team.

Heather Gramston, who joined Browns as womenswear buying manager in May 2019, has been promoted to head of womenswear buying, reporting directly into womenswear and menswear buying director, Ida Petersson.

In addition, Holly Tenser has been promoted to buying manager for ready to wear, having seen upward growth on this category in her time with the business, and Flo Campbell has been appointed as womenswear buyer for ready to wear. Tenser will be working closely alongside womenswear buying manager for non-apparel, Hollie Harding, with both reporting into Heather Gramston.

Alongside the established menswear team directed by Dean Cook, head of menswear, with buyers Lee Goldup and Thom Scherdel, Joe Brunner has been promoted to assistant buyer working closely alongside Costanza Lombardi, womenswear buyer of next-gen and casualwear, to platform the best of Browns global talent.

Ida Petersson commented: “As we enter a new decade and the next phase of evolution for Browns, the need to expand and strengthen the current buying structure felt essential.

“Heather has been an incredible asset to the company, bringing with her a wealth of experience and very quickly grasping the unique formula that make up the Browns DNA, making her the perfect candidate to head up the women’s division. I am very excited about working with Heather and Dean to define and elevate the Browns offer going forward.”
