Mark became an angel investor in 2011. Since then he has been integral to the business’s growth as its largest investor, and ultimately as Chairman (2014-18). He has brought his operational expertise to bear, particularly within e-commerce strategy, IT guidance, and development of online pure play marketing strategies. He has worked to mentor the company’s executive teams to meet the needs of a rapidly growing consumer goods e-commerce business.

He has an active, hands-on role with management and operations – guiding the company to its triple digit growth period, to achieve the successful business it is today.

“To see my original vision for Cult Beauty come to life as a global business that drives integrity, innovation and transparency in the beauty industry has been a dream come true. Cult Beauty’s returns demonstrate the enormous and largely untapped opportunity to invest in sustainable, women-fronted businesses. I will forever be grateful for Mark Quinn-Newall (co-founder of Net-A-Porter) and his ASD-driven brilliance.”
