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.”
