MEET THE TEAM
Background: Zimbabwean - born and bred
Makadini (Shona greeting) I'm James and I've been with the business for nearly 15 years. I came over from Zimbabwe after high school to study and even given the lack of sunshine, I love the UK. Being married with 2 young daughters, my life revolves around them. I also enjoy running even though my quest for sub 40min 10k is proving rather elusive and aged me.
I'm so looking forward to interacting with people across the business and so excited about the legacy a group like this is capable of in terms of creating something that makes a lasting impact.
Background: Black British, Jamaican descent
Hi I'm Viv. I've been with Next for 6 years. I was born in Hertfordshire but I've lived in Derbyshire for many, many years. I love shopping and food (any and all food)
I'm really excited to be part of this group. I've experienced many different levels of racism, exclusion, discrimination and intolerance purely because of the colour of my skin. I'm passionate about celebrating diversity, promoting equality and cultural awareness.
