Store Operations Manager - Travel Retail EMEA
Greetings from Athens!
My name is Edita, and I’m excited to share a bit about myself & my journey with AMARLA!
I am always looking to grow, enrich my experience and extend my horizon in the retail world. Since joining AMARLA in the summer of 2015, I have been given the opportunity to work in an international and culturally diverse environment, where I am continuously evolving, professionally and personally.
Working as a Store Manager in Sweden was the first exciting chapter of my journey in AMARLA, and less than a year into my role, I was appointed two stores, two amazing Brands! This challenge truly pushed me out of my comfort zone and gave me the chance to further develop my sales and leadership skills, while gaining valuable experience in the Travel Retail industry.
In early 2017, AMARLA announced an opportunity for relocation to the exclusive Island of Mykonos, leading our Victoria’s Secret Boutique for the upcoming season – an opportunity I was not going to pass up. It was a pivotal moment in my career path, it motivated and gave me the confidence to pursue the next level within the company, and I’m happy to say AMARLA embraced my aspiration.
Today, I am part of the AMARLA family based in our HQ, appointed Travel Retail Store Operations Manager, working with Travel Retail operators in 7 countries and growing network across EMEA.
I am beyond thankful for all of the incredible opportunities in the course of these 4 years, the positive challenges, supportive and inspirational leaders and teams that I’ve had the honor of working with.
To my AMARLA family, thank you for believing in me, recognizing my efforts and passion, and allowing me to do what I love for a living!
