Savannah Sachs is the Managing Director of Birchbox UK, which offers an efficient, personalised way to discover and shop for new beauty products.
Birchbox was founded in September 2010, redefining the beauty e-commerce experience by pairing a monthly subscription of personalised samples with editorial content to create a seamless path to purchase full-size products online. Today Birchbox has more than 1 million subscribers and operates in six countries, including the US, UK, Ireland, France, Belgium, and Spain.
As Managing Director of Birchbox UK, Savannah is responsible for overall business strategy, long-term vision, and ongoing operations. She leads a local team across all business functions, including Brand Partnerships, E-commerce, Content, Marketing, and Operations.

In 2015 Birchbox UK’s subscription and e-commerce revenue doubled and is on track to more than double again in 2016.
