MAN­AG­ING DI­REC­TOR SOUTH­EAST ASIA, VAN CLEEF & AR­PELS

“I’ve been work­ing with Van Cleef & Ar­pels for the past 11 years, start­ing in re­tail at the his­toric Place Ven­dome store. I’ve al­ways been in­ter­ested in Asian cul­ture – as a stu­dent I stud­ied Ja­panese and went on an ex­change pro­gramme at a univer­sity in Bangkok – so work­ing in Sin­ga­pore is an ex­cit­ing prospect.

“I be­lieve that the most im­por­tant val­ues of Van Cleef & Ar­pels to be com­mu­ni­cated are those of her­itage, crafts­man­ship and ex­cel­lence. I’m cur­rently busy with en­sur­ing the smooth op­er­a­tion of our Malaysian bou­tique, which we took over to man­age in­ter­nally last year, and plans to re-in­tro­duce our Takashimaya bou­tique, which has just been ren­o­vated. We are also ex­plor­ing other op­por­tu­ni­ties by look­ing at re­tail lo­ca­tions in the re­gion.”
