I have been with Heinemann Asia Pacific for almost 6 years now, and have had the great pleasure of looking after the Fashion & Accessories Category for the region. I am of Filipino descent, but grew up in Hong Kong and the US before working in New York, London and now Singapore, always within the Fashion Industry. I love fashion and am passionate about product. My job here at Heinemann encompasses a myriad of responsibilities - brand selection, relationship management, negotiations, merchandising, trend analysis...There is never a dull day here! My role at the company has evolved greatly during my time here, and I have seen the company go from being an up-start/start-up in the region to now managing a flagship location in my category - Sydney Airport. Sydney Tax & Duty Free was a first for Heinemann in many ways - it raised the bar in terms of presentation and offer, gave us the opportunity to start relationships with a number of new brands, and enabled us to build competence in new categories. Having had the good fortune to live and work in the US, Europe and Asia, the Travel Retail channel is a great fit - it enables one to work on and to understand various different markets and to work in a dynamic and ever-evolving industry. Heinemann in particular is a truly special place to work within this industry - a truly international company, with employees from all over the world, that still manages to touch their individual employees and maintain a family spirit throughout. It is utterly unique.
