An Van Der Spiegel


An Van Der Spiegel - Innovation Manager EMEA

I develop inspiring new products for the retail market in Europe and Asia, for the core range as well as for special offers like limited editions or seasonal collections. My job has an operational as well as a strategic aspect, and it is extremely varied, thanks to the contacts with other departments, in Europe and beyond. It is also very exciting to see the collections finally in the stores, after months of development within a challenging timeline. And when a collection is successful, it’s even more rewarding! As Product Manager it's very important to take ownership and to focus on priorities and solutions: we have to maintain a strong brand, known around the world, and we have to be flexible and results-oriented, resolutely overcoming all obstacles by taking the right decisions.
