Meet Kate

Global Culture & Esprit Cares Manager

   

Kate joined Esprit in 2017 and works in Human Resources. She says the best thing about her job is getting to know everyone in our Headquarters in Ratingen and in the 40 countries where we are present. Kate is striving to form and build upon our unique culture: to understand it, appreciate it and shape it. Esprit was founded on a spirit of volunteering and Kate leads Esprit Cares, which organizes programs that employees can get involved in. Recently she ran a plasma donation drive, managed a charity sample sale, and organized the Mind, Body, and Earth Week

     

Her typical day begins with prepping on the train from Düsseldorf to Ratingen, followed by a morning webex with global managers sharing successful volunteering activities. Then, meeting with local organizations or people who have charity suggestions, followed by a meeting with the Apprentices who are running their Spring Flowers campaign, and going to play pick-up football with other colleagues

Meet Dilini

Community Manager

                

"Social media is the future of communication,” Dilini says with absolute confidence. Dilini manages a team who review hundreds of comments and enquiries from consumers each month on Esprit’s social media platforms. “The interactions vary from questions about orders, interest in our sustainability initiatives, or the availability of our latest styles in various counties.”

                                               

Dilini reflects, “In my team, we are given freedom to come up with ideas and try them – I love this supportive and encouraging spirit.” Dilini joined the Esprit team and has grown through the ranks as the importance of digital has accelerated. “There is so much potential and so much for us to do.” Recently Dilini led the launch of the new user-generated content gallery #BeEsprit in the e-shop where consumers can share photos of their latest Esprit outfits via Instagram

Triff John

Head of Design, Esprit Women Design Department

                                

John Connor wurde in Belfast, Nordirland, geboren. Seine Eltern hatten für ihn eigentlich eine Polizistenkarriere vorgesehen. Aber John zog es nach London, wo er an der weltberühmten Kunst- und Designhochschule Central Saint Martin zu studieren anfing. Zu ihren ehemaligen Studenten gehörten u.a. auch weltberühmte Designer wie John Galliano und Alexander McQueen. "Diese Erfahrung hat meinen Blick auf die Welt verändert", sagt er. John begann als Modezeichner, wollte dann aber auch wissen, wie Kleidung entsteht und welche Prozesse bei der Produktion durchlaufen werden müssen

                                                 

Das führte ihn zunächst zur Entwicklung von Schnittmustern und schließlich zum Fashiondesign. Seine Arbeit brachte ihn in die Modemetropolen der Welt, darunter London, New York und Mailand. John's Aufgabe bei Esprit ist es, einen roten Faden durch die Womens Kollektion zu ziehen. Nachdem die Richtung für jede Kollektion festgelegt ist, beginnt er zu reisen, sich inspirieren zu lassen und die neuen Kleidungsstücke zu entwerfen. Für John ist Qualität und das gute Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis die Essenz von Esprit. Er möchte Kleidung designen, die Frauen zu jeder Saison tragen können
