Kieran Wright

Head of Retail, Budd Shirtmakers

Kieran began working in heritage menswear whilst studying in Edinburgh. This was followed by 6 years running tailoring and made to measure for an independent multi brand retailer. Kieran joined Richemont in 2016 working for the Montblanc UK maison until joining Authentic Bespoke in early 2019 where he manages the Retail across the group.
