Savannah Sachs is the Managing Director of Birchbox UK, which offers an efficient, personalised way to discover and shop for new beauty products. Birchbox was founded in September 2010, redefining the beauty e-commerce experience by pairing a monthly subscription of personalised samples with editorial content to create a seamless path to purchase full-size products online. Today Birchbox has more than 1 million subscribers and operates in six countries, including the US, UK, Ireland, France, Belgium, and Spain. As Managing Director of Birchbox UK, Savannah is responsible for overall business strategy, long-term vision, and ongoing operations. She leads a local team across all business functions, including Brand Partnerships, E-commerce, Content, Marketing, and Operations. In the last 12 months, Birchbox UK has celebrated 125% year on year growth, making it the fastest growing market and the No.1 beauty box in the UK. Earlier this year, speaking at the Millennial 2020 event in London, she said: "We've just scratched the surface on a much bigger opportunity when we, two years ago, developed a deeper understanding of who our customer is." Prior to graduating from Harvard Business School and joining the Birchbox leadership team, Savannah worked in management consulting at Booz & Company advising Fortune 500 retail, personal care, and pharmaceutical clients. Before moving to London Savannah was a Director for Birchbox International in New York. Her consulting experience in strategy, organisational effectiveness, and talent management were instrumental in driving rapid growth and scaling the Birchbox UK business. Savannah earned a BA in Psychology with Honors from Princeton University and an MBA with High Distinction from Harvard Business School. She is originally from Boston and now lives in London.

The thing about IRX is the consistency, it’s now a very well established show, it’s well-known within our industry and for me what’s interesting, is that it attracts a lot of established businesses that want to do even more and get even bigger.
