TM Insight announced that three global innovators in ecommerce, Nicole Scherholz Cipolla, Jan Becker and Mitch Bittermann, former executives at Global Fashion Group, Zalora and Adidas, are joining TM Insight to lead its new ecommerce and digital team. This new venture at TM Insight comes off the back of rapid global acceleration in ecommerce and client demand for digital expertise.
Nicole Scherholz Cipolla was most recently Group Senior Strategy Director at Global Fashion Group, the parent company of The Iconic, and Chief Commercial Officer at online fashion retailer Zalora Philippines. She is a recognised leader in successfully managing rapid growth and turning online businesses profitable, particularly in the consumer and retail sector, having previously headed up key growth categories at major European eCommerce platform Zalando.
Jan Becker is the former Director of Brand Marketing and Consumer Strategy at Zalora and Vice President of Marketing at Central Group Online, part of Thailand’s largest retail conglomerate. He is known for his expertise in brand management and digital marketing, having led the brand strategy department at Zalando. Additionally, during Zalando’s evolution from start-up to stock-listed company, he worked on a variety of strategic initiatives to drive organisational transformation and facilitate hyper-growth.
Mitch Bittermann, most recently Director of Ecommerce Southeast Asia at Adidas, is a recognised leader of eCommerce and logistics strategies. He set up the front and backend strategy for Adidas’ brand.com and marketplaces ventures across the region, which enabled Adidas to significantly scale their online business. Prior to Adidas, he was the Group Chief Commercial Officer at aCommerce, the leading eCommerce service provider in Southeast Asia, bringing brands and retailers online.
Cipolla and Becker will join TM Insight as Executive Directors of Ecommerce, based in Australia, and Bittermann will join as Executive Vice President of Ecommerce for TM Insight Asia, based in Singapore.
Together they will lead TM Insight’s eCommerce and digital offering across the Asia-Pacific region, working with TM Insight’s broader supply chain and property consulting business to provide businesses a truly end-to-end service offering in their retail and supply chain transformations.
“Our clients have experienced an incredible acceleration in eCommerce growth, with global online retail expected to reach up to US $10 trillion by 2023,” said Travis Erridge, CEO, TM Insight.
He continued that with this growth, eCommerce is now a crucial component in a retailer’s business strategy that defines their supply chain and property solutions.
