Tell us about your journey with L’OCCITANE
I have been with the company for 3 years in Australia but started my journey with the brand 6 years ago in New Zealand. I was fortunate to join the business in my last year of university as a Christmas casual. I was soon offered the role of a part-time sales assistant, followed by full time sales assistant and then Manager for one of the busiest boutiques in Auckland. Not long after, I got promoted to be the Regional Manager to look after 12 boutiques.
I then moved to Sydney in April 2012 and became part of the corporate team as Retail Marketing Manager. My role is to plan campaign offers for the retail channel and support retail teams to allow customers to shop through a sensorial journey to Provence.
