GYMSHARK 0 - $100 Million in 6 Years | WHY WE SELL OUT OF STOCK SO FAST | Ben Francis
 
08:28
Gymshark has been my entire life since I started it as a teenager. After becoming the UK's fastest growing company, I decided to publicise the documentation of my journey that I've been keeping all these years. In this video I respond to the masses of questions that we receive every day about us selling out of our stock too quickly. I hope this gives you a little bit more context behind the daily issues we have dealing with our growth, and how we are managing it. If anyone has any questions or anything they want to see in any future videos, please comment below! Ps. Although I am a founder and am telling this story, there is a huge team of incredible people who have contributed, and continue to contribute to Gymshark every day. I hope to be able to show you more of what the team and I do in my future videos! I hope you enjoy :) Follow me on social media: http://instagram.com/benfrancis https://twitter.com/benfrancis1992

I'm Not Gymshark CEO Anymore | Business Vlog | Ben Francis
 
15:37
Whilst still remaining the majority shareholder and owner at Gymshark, this is the rise of the creatives. I’m proud to announce that I’ve made the decision to move away from the CEO role at Gymshark, and focus on my strengths as the Chief Brand Officer (CBO). I dedicate every single day to making sure that becomes Gymshark the greatest brand in the world. Gone are the days of pumping out tons of irrelevant product and throwing them into any store that will stock it. We are creating only the most beautiful, purposeful product that we want to wear, and create the experiences that we want to be a part of. I hope you enjoy more of a behind the scenes view of my working week - and please subscribe if you want to join us on our journey. Thanks for taking the time out to read this and watch the video.
