Our Reporters

Since its launch in September 2008, WhichPLM has become an industry institution, packed with exclusive news, interviews, analysis and insight.  Our staff of contributors may have changed in the intervening years, but our mission statement has always been clear: we work on behalf of the fashion industry, creating the clearest possible channels of communication between its technology suppliers, brands, and customers.

Having covered industry events from the beginning – from huge, industry-wide events like NRF and Texprocess, to supplier-specific events, the WhichPLM Reporters are dedicated and exceptional at what they do. Whizzing around trade show floors throughout the world, you’ll usually find our CEO, our Editor, or one of our top two reporters.

Editorial-team-BenBen Hanson is one of WhichPLM’s top contributors, and a dedicated reporter. Ben has worked for magazines, newspapers, local government agencies, multi-million pound conservation projects, museums and creative publications before his eventual migration to the Retail, Footwear and Apparel industry.

Having previously served as WhichPLM’s Editor, Ben knows the WhichPLM style, and has been responsible for many of our on-the-ground reports and interviews over the last few years. With a background in literature, marketing and communications, Ben has more than a decade’s worth of experience, and is now viewed as one of the industry’s best-known writers.
