Indochino makes two executive appointments to support expansion

BY Marianne Wilson

Indochino is building its executive team as it lays the foundation for long-term growth in North America and abroad.

The fast-growing, custom menswear retailer appointed Alex Buhler as chief technology officer and Vanessa Pillay as VP of finance. Buhler previously was CTO at Clearly, part of the Essilor Group, a leader in ophthalmic optics, and CIO of Mountain Equipment Co-op. Pillay most recently led the finance team at Microsoft South Africa.

“We are excited to welcome these incredibly talented leaders, Alex and Vanessa, into two critical business functions,” said Drew Green, president and CEO, Indochino. “Their knowledge and expertise will help ensure we have an unrivaled framework in place for long-term sustained and profitable global growth.”

Indochino has been on a strong growth trajectory since it first expanded from a digitally native brand to brick-and-mortar in 2015. To date, the company has opened 45 retail locations in the U.S. and Canada, with up to 15 more planned for 2019.

Most recently, Indochino added Australia to its international footprint, the first country outside of North America it has officially invested in. Initially launching online, this move paves the way for Australian brick-and-mortar expansion in the future, along with further international expansion.
