We help e-commerce retailers, direct-to-consumer brands and digital platforms to find board members or advisors with the experience, connections and acumen to support their ambitions.

As your business grows it’s important to have someone on your side that knows how to navigate the many challenges ahead. Make the right decisions by engaging a highly experienced director that can help you to scale, transform and exit brands.

“Leon introduced me to one of our now investors and board members which I’m very grateful for. It has definitely been worth getting involved with Upper Clash.”

Natanel Bigger, Founder & CEO, Monpure London

With 10+ years of welcoming retail, e-commerce, fashion, beauty and luxury directors to our events we can identify the players that have really impacted growth in the companies they’ve been working with.

We now provide a service to management teams wanting to engage the high level experience these leaders have on their board, as a member or advisor.

Executive headhunters we are not – our history is steeped in networking events and curating discussion on retail industry matters. Knowing the right people, and the hot topics facing retail leaders, is the business we’re in.

“Leon and one of his partners introduced me to the VP of a global brand in a similar category to ours. It was really helpful to be able to talk to him about growth. He ended up joining our board as a non-executive director.”

St.John Pearce-Burke, Founder and Managing Director, TOTM

That background puts us in a unique position to help e-commerce retailers, direct-to-consumer brands and digital platforms to find a board member that’s right for them.

Some of the most experienced, able and proven operators are not actively seeking board or consultancy positions. Not only can we uncover them but sell them on the opportunity in helping your business to succeed.

Being highly experienced they may come with investment or provide access to a network of investors or VCs.

The service we provide is different to that offered by executive search firms, as such our fees are accessible to early stage businesses.
