Daniel Mendonca

Retail Manager
About

A real company ambassador that takes pride in embodying the identity of the organisation. A reliable, ethical and responsible Manager with more than 10 years' experience in managing and promoting businesses, exceeding business targets and revenues, ensuring the compliance of the operational processes. I worked with limited edition products, timepieces, fashion (Men, Women and kids), accessories (bags, shoes, eyewear), fragrances, kitchenware and knives. Having worked in luxury destinations such as New Bond Street and Knightsbridge I have developed a strong sense of luxury service and retail excellence. As a manager I am highly successful in defining the store strategy and direction, optimising business potential and achieving the highest standards and KPI's. With my background in Marketing and people support, I am focused on coaching and mentoring high performance retail teams with the interpersonal skills to build robust and productive relationships with customers. With experience in leading, motivating and inspiring teams, I speak a few different languages and I am a skilled communicator in multicultural environments.
