I was born in Italy and brought up in the Netherlands where I have worked in the fashion industry for over 25 years. During this time, I have built up a large international network, which enables me to stay on the cutting edge of new industry trends and facilitates the implementation of innovative solutions to industry challenges.

Thinking in terms of opportunities has helped me develop my know-how across the entire apparel supply chain. I spot market trends and innovations and work with brands and manufacturers to convert these developments into routes for differentiation and profitable market share growth.

I love being involved in business development within emerging countries. It gives me first-hand knowledge to be able to support brands looking for supply partners. Collaborating with both Non Profits and the private sector, I help to ensure the commercial relevance of transformation projects. I have found it is a great way to transfer my practical experience to support people and help grow their communities as well as strengthen their organizations.
