GRANT MORRIS

CEO & Founder

As CEO of the UK's leading Luxury Consultancy and Recruitment business for over 10 years, Grant Morris brings a polished and savvy approach to talent sourcing and development. With a wealth of experience in restructures and start ups, his talent lies with providing integrated sales-based solutions across a variety of industry sectors. His expertise and experience in the luxury fashion and beauty industry coupled with a background in law and a penchant for retail analysis, brings a consultative and leveraged edge to both his colleagues and clients. Grant's strong belief in providing the very best permanent, executive, and interim personnel to some of the most prestigious retailers in the world, has set the standard for an entire industry and has allowed him to dedicate his professional endeavours to optimizing dynamics between the retailer and an ever-changing, ever-evolving luxury consumer. It is this passion which fuelled his 2013 initiative of the creation of the Elite Retail Training Academy, a dynamic learning environment for new candidates entering the enterprising world of luxury retail sales and management.

A native Londoner with a keen interest in contemporary art, Grant is committed to sharing his success by giving back to the community.
