Occa Home, the furniture etailer backed by Asos and The Hut investor The William Currie Group, has appointed former Best Buy Europe boss Bob Willett to its board.

Willett, who is currently chairman of MetaPack, joins as the etailer continues its international expansion. Almost 25% of its sales are generated overseas.

Occa Home founder and chief executive Kate Mooney said: “Our strategy for Occa is not about raising money in isolation - it’s about attracting an experienced team of experts who will make a tangible and sustainable difference to the business - therefore we’re all delighted to welcome Bob to the board and as a shareholder and look forward to the results of adding his skills and experience to the team.”

Occa Home was set up in 2009 and achieved 185% sales growth in its last financial year.
