Philip Rooke will pass the baton in more than eight months time
CEO of Spreadshirt, Philip Rooke, is moving on at the end of March 2021 after eleven years at the helm of the global self-expression platform. During his time at Spreadshirt Group the company has moved from 1 to 5 brands, grown revenue by 600%, opened up to 18 countries and became a global market leader.
Given the recent world events, the impressive global response to racism and concerns about the clarity of our ethical position, we have created a statement to provide more information:
Spreadshirt as an organisation
Who we are
Spreadshirt has over 900 colleagues from over 40 different countries. We have always been and always will be an organization that is against racism, sexism, discrimination and bullying for any reason. This is ingrained in our DNA. We value diversity at Spreadshirt and talent takes priority regardless of age, skin color, religion, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, marital or disability status.
This understanding of who we are influences our recruiting, corporate social responsibility and our everyday behaviour. These values we carry with us every day also flow naturally into the basis of our platform and our guidelines.
Aiming for record numbers in second half of 2020 despite COVID-19
Spreadshirt Group successfully continued to demonstrate profitable growth for 2019. Last year, Europe’s leading print-on-demand platform generated a revenue of $146 million, a 12.9% increase compared to the previous year. The large order market from teams, social groups and businesses were the primary contributors to this growth. Business units like Create-Your-Own and TeamShirts exhibited notable development. Additionally, Spreadshirt marked significant improvement in most other business units and a movement towards the B2B market.
