what i do
I am a Director of Merchandising at a luxury jewelry brand.
Officially, my job is to provide quantitative and qualitative analysis of my company’s inventory, sales, market trends, product designs and develop assortment plans and forecasts.
Which really means, I aim to make everyone’s job easier so they can focus less on data and more and doing what they love to do. If Sales has what they need to sell in stock, Finance is comfortable with the Open to Buy, Marketing knows which products to advertise in the New York Times and Product Development has clear direction on what to develop for next few seasons, I know I’ve succeeded in doing my job.
