Rachel Gilley has taken over as MD at Bite UK following the departure of Kath Easthope, who is currently on extended maternity leave.
Easthope departed the Next 15-owned firm after nine years in the role. Former deputy MD Rachel Gilley is currently serving as Bite UK MD, reporting to Helena Maus, Bite Global CEO based in San Francisco.
Gilley said: “Kath has made the decision not to return to Bite after her maternity leave. Having spent almost a decade with Bite, she has decided to explore new challenges. We wish her the best of luck.”
Tim Dyson, Next 15 CEO, said: “I’m very sad that she is moving on, Kath was a huge contributor to Bite over the years. She was a great leader of Bite UK. She had the time to take a break and reflect on what she wanted to do and she decided to take a different path. I am excited for her and wish her good luck. We’re very supportive of what she wants to do and excited to see what she does next.”
