Timon Kuit has worked for major corporations managing multimillion budgets, but also has been hands on with no budget prelaunch startups to scale the growth expectations. Full of entrepreneurial flare, he has set up three ecommerce websites and one agency by the age of 28. He began his career by creating digital agency MediaCrats in 2008, which he ran for three years, while working his way up at Sony Electronics. During this time he created Collectioncases.nl in 2009, a website selling jewellery cases and watch winders (it closed in 2010), and then watch and jewellery website Blinckers.com in 2010, before joining Marks & Spencer as business development manager in 2013.
His successes there include developing a strategy for click-and-collect for its international markets in western Europe, Poland, Czech Republic and Hong Kong. He also set up footwear website Artshoe.co.uk in 2014 and will enroll the Executive MBA programme at the University of Oxford – Said business school this January.
After his assignment at M&S he led the digital transformation within The White Company, to launch their ecommerce business onto a new platform. This migration project has been seen as the foundation to the future online successes for The White Company.
