Turning an eCommerce business into a global titan is the theme of an exclusive event next week.

The event has been organised by eComplete, which was launched in November 2020 by former THG execs Paul Gedman and Andy Duckworth to act as a growth partner and capital investor in eCommerce brands.

Gedman and Duckworth will be joined by Laurence Newman, CEO and co-founder of CurrentBody, which eComplete bought a sizeable stake in, in 2021.

The event takes place on October 19th at KPMG’s offices, at 1 St Peter’s Square, Manchester, starting at 3pm, and will be hosted by Chris Maguire, executive editor of BusinessCloud and TechBlast.

Gedman and Duckworth will be sharing their own remarkable eCommerce journey, from propelling the expansion of THG as a global leader to creating industry giants such as MyProtein and LookFantastic.
