Route One is a high street retailer with stores in Bristol, Southampton, Bath, Brighton, Cardiff and Edinburgh.

They were early adopters of e-commerce and now have an online streetwear and action sports store with over 300 brands it attracts over 5 million visitors a year and was the winner of Drapers coveted ‘Best Independent Retailer’ in 2011.

As the Senior Project Manager for Route One, it was my job to work closely with all stakeholders to agree their development roadmap.

With the road map in place, I’d work closely with the Business Analysts and Senior Development team to work out the budget required to deliver the individual enhancements on the road map.

After receiving sign off from Route One it was time to plan the enhancements work, not always easy when your resources were working on multiple projects at the same time. The two-year stint I managed the ongoing development of Route One was a hugely enjoyable and successful one.
