With more than 20 years of operational, sales and commercial management experience across a number of UK retail businesses, including Coffee Nation, Fired Earth and Birthdays, Carl saw online retailing as a natural evolution in his career.
Having witnessed the explosive success of member’s only online shopping clubs throughout Europe, Carl joined his brother Jamie who originally identified a gap in the Asia Pacific and launched
Australia’s first private online shopping club in 2007.
From humble beginnings in a small warehouse on Sydney’s Northern Beaches ozsale.com.au was the first online members-only shopping club in Australia, pioneering a new channel of distribution.
Originally focused on sourcing European fashion brands, the business quickly expanded to include all fashion, footwear & accessories, homewares, beauty, toys and more.
Early success in Australia paved the way for expansion into New Zealand and South East Asia before opportunities further afield in the United Kingdom were realised.
The strategic acquisitions of the flash brands buyinvite in May 2012 and Cocosa in 2014 and the eRetail brands Deals Direct, OO.com.au and Top Buy in 2015 further diversified the business and consolidated our position as the leading online retailer in Australasia.
