Darryl Rawlings has started his new role as chair of online wine retailer Naked Wines following the company’s annual general meeting.
Rawlings is founder and CEO of Trupanion, a US subscription business that provides medical insurance for pets. He joined the Naked Wines board as a non-executive director in April.
He has taken over from Ian Harding, who spent eight years as chair.
Harding commented on Rawlings’ appointment: “I am delighted that Darryl has agreed to join Naked Wines at such an important moment in our growth journey.
“Darryl’s appointment adds valuable skills and experience, and a further US focus to the team.”
