Direct manager

I have known Gustavo for over 25 years and over the years he has just gotten better, matured and a true asset to an organisation. He started with Mexx, where I was the founder of the Retail business - his passion and willingness to learn and deliver results made him stand out amongst his peers. From that early start, he has gone from strength to strength as a team player, a leader and an influential member of the senior management team. My trust in him is unwavering in delivering solid and continued results.
