Leaving Hotel Chocolat

As some of you will now know I left my role as Online Marketing Manager at Hotel Chocolat two weeks ago to pursue a new role as Online Acquisition Manager at premium department store House of Fraser, working within the e-commerce department.

I have truly loved every minute of my role at Hotel Chocolat and would like to take this opportunity to thank EVERYONE whom I worked with for all their help and support that you have given me over the last 2 and half years.

Their have been many highlights during my role from the launch of the new UK website, naturally the expansion to American with the various awards Hotel Chocolat claimed – Retail Week award and acquiring CoolBrands status but then also being taken out by one of my affiliates to a cricket test match – an awesome touch by an affiliate and fantastic day out (KP hit 222) and my CJU affiliate marketing award for Outstanding Personal Contribution to Affiliate Marketing– which was fantastic recognition from my peers of the hard work that I have put into the Hotel Chocolat affiliate program.

I have learned a lot and I also hope I have become good friends with many people in the industry. Many treat business as just that whereas, they forget in this industry it is all about the people and their relationships. I believe this should always remain the key focus to ensure continued success for all involved

I’ll naturally now be updating my blog on the latest from House of Fraser including managing the affiliate program and listing the latest promotions on here to general updates and naturally keeping up to date with Bolton’s plight to stay in the Premier league.

Thanks, Chris

Ah hah! I knew that I recognised your name when we chatted earlier. I have been reading your blog in the past and been very interested in Hotel Chocolat too.
I think we may have spoken before whilst you were at Hotel Chocolat and certainly I had read your article in e-consultancy.
Small world, eh?!

I hope you settle in at HoF and that we may meet soon.

Well done Chris! no more free chocolate...I've heard rumors that you've received a lifetime supply or you can take as much chocolate as your weight? Anyway, all the best in your new job! Take care!
