What do you enjoy most about working in the retail industry?
There are so many things that I love about the industry, namely the product, the pace and the people!
If you weren’t working in the retail industry, what do you think you’d be doing?
I would have been a portrait photographer or a cartographer.
How would you describe your leadership style?
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received, and who gave you the advice?
Ask questions and draw out the right answer from your team. I received this advice from one of my first bosses and never forgot it.
Do you have any mentors in the retail industry?
Yes, too many to mention by name.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?
I love being in wide-open spaces and travelling to see wide-open spaces.
