Global Fashion Group (GFG), the leading fashion and lifestyle destination in growth markets, has announced the appointment of Matthew Price as the group’s chief financial officer. Matthew will be joining GFG later this month and will be based in London. GFG is the leading fashion and lifestyle destination in Asia Pacific, Latin America, and CIS.

Matthew was most recently CFO of Moneysupermarket and has held key financial roles at Costa Coffee in the UK and Asia, and Sainsbury’s. He will be taking over as CFO from Nils Chrestin who joined GFG’s CIS business, Lamoda in 2013 and was appointed as group CFO in 2015. During this time, Chrestin has been instrumental in the development of the business and leading GFG’s global finance function.

“I am delighted to welcome Matthew to GFG. His broad commercial and international experience makes him an ideal fit. With his track record of working across retail and digital sectors to drive positive change, he is a welcome addition to the team and I am looking forward to working with him. I would like to thank Chrestin for his contributions, passion and leadership over the years and we wish him all the best on both a professional and personal level for this next chapter,” Christoph Barchewitz, Co-CEO, GFG said in a company press release.

“As a leader in e-commerce in the fashion & lifestyle sector in growth markets, GFG is in a strong position. I am very excited about the future of the company and am looking forward to getting started and working with the GFG leadership team on the next phase of GFG’s development,” Price said. “It has been a privilege to work as part of a talented and committed team over the years. Together we have positioned GFG as the leading online fashion and lifestyle destination for our customers and brand partners across our 17 countries of operations – and the opportunity ahead remains tremendous,” Chrestin said.
