LONDON — The London-based retailer Matches has named Ulric Jerome chief operations officer to help drive the global growth of Matchesfashion.com. He has also joined the company’s board of directors.
Jerome was part of the founding group of entrepreneurs that launched the French electricals website Pixmania.com in 2000, and grew it to a business with revenues over 800 million euros, operating in 26 countries. The U.K.-based electrical retailer Dixons acquired a majority stake in that company in 2006.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
