Wild Bunch & Friends - Stuart Morbey Q&A
We have introduced a little segment for our blog titled: Wild Bunch & Friends - Q&A
Each week we will ‘interview’ people who we are friends of, admire, find Interesting or generally just find funny.
Next in line is our mate Stuart Morbey. Stu has probably got the most impressive job titles out of all my mates tbf. ‘Senior Director of Global Fashion Sales - Adidas'. Saying that, it’s not surprising seeing as most of my mates now are brickies and scaffolders.
We first met Stu over 20 years ago when he worked for Levis Vintage. We continued to work with him when he then moved on to Adidas and climbed the ranks. I’m not bitter about his Meteoric rise... Honest
