Head of IT – Douglas and Grahame – Carrickfergus

You might not have heard of Douglas & Grahame… But chances are, you’ll have heard of some of the brands they own – Remus Uomo, 1880 club or Daniel Grahame.

Remus Uomo is the flagship brand for Douglas and Grahame.  It is well known for quality, fit, and commerciality.  

I can vouch for this as I have three Remus Uomo suits hanging in my wardrobe!

Douglas and Grahame are a family run business that has been serving retailers across the globe since 1924.  They have a state-of-the-art HQ and distribution hub in Carrickfergus, with sales offices in England and premium showrooms in major cities across the UK and Ireland.

With the company’s long-established strength and success rooted in an unmatched commitment to product quality and exceptional customer service across all channels, Douglas & Grahame’s future vision is now focussed on ‘connected retail’, and the creation of a seamless experience for customers engaging with each of its brands across all offline and online touchpoints. 

Leveraging new technologies to bring leading-edge digital environments to the shop floor, enhancing customer experience and customer service in the fulfilment of an omnichannel sales strategy.
