His understanding of the retail business and his learning in this process

“Every day of my 40 years in retail has been a learning experience. But the most important is that retail is in details. Being in a fast paced dynamic fashion industry, one needs to constantly keep his ears to the ground.  We need to tempt customers with new trends and bring products to the market lightening fast.  To accomplish this, you need to have information to make faster decisions and be a lot smarter with how we do our buying and inventory management.”
