I am an illustrator who can do more than just drawing.
I started at Claudie Pierlot as Assistant Manager, being promoted as Branch Manager in April 2014. My key duties are: Taking responsibility to achieve targets, monitor and issue instructions to staff members (five members), weekly one to one reviews, weekly and monthly team reviews, ensure all paperwork is filled correctly, CRM and clienteling, maintain company standards and complying with company policy and procedures. Also I am responsible for Visual Merchandising, taking responsibility of my own creative decisions.
Applied brand visual merchandising principles and used commercial skills to meet sales targets. Used tools available such as bestsellers, brand analysis, weekly VM guidelines to support and ensure the store’s layout is a commercial success. I worked closely with retail managers and feedback on a regular basis on actions taken, issues encountered and problems solved. Ensured all stores had relevant VM equipment, collates VM costs and orders for new stores.
