Mark Sebba, the former chief executive of luxury etailer Net-a-Porter, has joined the board of the flower delivery company Flowerbx. The firm, launched almost a year ago by Adam Wilkie, the former PR director at Tom Ford, secured new funding last month and Mr Sebba will advise on its growth plans. These include expanding beyond London deliveries and opening bases in Paris and Germany by the end of 2017. 

Flowerbx sells single variety bunches of flowers sourced direct from suppliers in Holland and clients have included the designer Michael Kors.
