Tom Ford: Refashioning HR at an iconic brand

January 17, 2024

Inside many creative companies HR can be less mature than you might imagine, but at Tom Ford Fashion that’s changing with the arrival of its first Chief People Officer, Abigail Wilmore.  

In this warm and thoughtful conversation, change-maker Abigail joins Paul for the latest episode of Rewilding Work with Paul Miller, sharing more on her new role and how she’s approaching this challenge. 

“Coming back into fashion was something that was really appealing to me. To do it for such a brand – and to help them to design the new organization and design the new future – was a challenge I just really wanted to take.”
