We are very much a ‘people company’. Who we are defines our company and the relationships we form with our brands and clients are paramount for the success of F.O.S.
We pride ourselves on the warm and friendly atmosphere created in our showrooms where a professional, relaxed and fun environment is experienced by all.
Founder of F.O.S and Managing Director. Combining a strong retail background with a long and successful wholesale background enables Chris to have a unique insight and educated foresight into the full spectrum of owning and operating a successful fashion agency. Chris is very ‘hands on’ (acts as Sales Manager for Monari and Milano) and as MD is quite understandably the driving force of the company.
Jacky has a vast experience in the wholesale side of the business and has been at F.O.S since 2005. Prior to her wholesale days Jacky trained as a professional dancer and appeared in shows all over and as far away as Japan! Motherhood subsequently intervened and the fashion industry beckoned. As Sales Manager of Repeat Cashmere (her baby!) and Mac Jeans Jacky does a thoroughly professional job.
Emma has spent many years in the industry and is well known from her days as a fashion buyer at Fenwick Bond St. Indeed Emma worked for Fenwick for 27 years! Switching to wholesale Emma most recently worked with the Betty Barclay UK and Ireland Sales Company and was snapped up by F.O.S when Betty Barclay changed their business model to work with F.O.S. Emma is the Betty Barclay Sales Manager for UK and Ireland.
With her proud Croatian/Polish/Canadian roots Renata has worked in the UK wholesale sector for many years most notably at Betty Barclay’s London based Sales Company. One of Renata’s assets is that she is multilingual and speaks five languages and another asset Renata has is her ability to sort out the many Brexit issues that continue to blight our industry. She is the Brexit Queen at F.O.S! Her official position is Bianca Sales Manager for GB.
Ruth is the Sales Manager for Bianca in Ireland and Northern Ireland and is the only member of staff not based in the London showroom. Ruth is based in Dublin and does an immense job on the island of Ireland. Ruth is very much adored and respected in Ireland by our clients over there and combines being a full-time mother to her beautiful little boy with the rigours of selling five collections a year and extensive travelling to boot!
Sophie is the newest member of the team and is the niece of Jacky Keller. Sophie has the illustrious title of ‘Multi-Brand Cordinator’ which means that she will be working on and be fully experienced on all the brands in time. Sophie is a professional entertainer/singer by trade (especially on cruise ships), however, her recent change in marital status to the lovely Ben has made her commit to the fashion industry to keep her closer to home!
Our seasonal staff are a very experienced crew and the stalwarts are Karen Davies, Jennie Beckwith-Thomas. Fay Acott-Smith and Carolyn Hall. The commitment to F.O.S season in, season out is wonderful and Karen for instance comes to work the few weeks of the season even though she resides in France! The seasonal staff are a crucial part of the success and smooth running of F.O.S.
