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.

Conoce a John

Director de diseño, ESPRIT Mujer Departamento de diseño




John Connor nación en Belfast, Irlanda del Norte. Con 19 años, y en contra de los planes de sus padres de convertirse en policía, John se trasladó a Londres. Allí estudió en la universidad de arte y diseño Central Saint Martins mundialmente prestigiosa, entre cuyos antiguos alumnos figuran John Galliano y Alexander McQueen. «Esta experiencia cambió fundamentalmente mi modo de ver el mundo», declara. John comenzó como ilustrador de moda, pero quería conocer cómo se elaboraban las prendas de moda y cómo estaba estructurado este mundo.





Esto le condujo a realizar patrones y de vez en cuando diseños, trabajo que le llevó por Londres, Nueva York y Milán. El puesto de John en Esprit consiste en garantizar que existe un ‘cordón rojo’ en la estética de las colecciones de mujer. Tras establecer la dirección de cada línea, se ocupa de viajar, inspirarse y realizar bocetos. Para John la esencia de Esprit es la relación calidad-precio, «productos que ella pueda ponerse todo el año.”

Meet Louisa

Area Manager Satellite Markets




Louisa has a wide responsibility. She sees over the Esprit business in 12 countries including Russia, Bulgaria, Croatia and Greece. This covers 15 Esprit franchise stores, and around 50 multi-brand spaces. How does Louisa manage the complexity of the cultures? “All our partners appreciate the same thing – good quality products and responsive communication.”




This year Louisa supported the opening of a new store in Croatia – this involved working on the contracts with legal, store layout with architecture, product selection and marketing. “It was a great experience to oversee the process from end-to-end. It’s amazing to create something new from the very beginning.”

Meet Nam

Vice President - Head of Marketing Technology Management




Nam leads a team of twelve with no hierarchy – how does it work? By setting clear goals and giving the team freedom, people drive themselves and support each other. “In the fast moving world of digital commerce, no one really knows what will be important to the customer in the future. So I give my team confidence to explore new ways - to test and learn.” Nam, educated in IT and business, started his career at Esprit in HR. My experience made me especially conscious of how to build and grow well performing teams.





Today Nam’s focus is to look for continuous improvements in how the Eshop and mobile app operate – online business represents around a quarter of Esprit’s global turnover. The team seeks to build the perfect consumer experience by using a magical combination of marketing and technology. The best thing about his job? “Expect the unexpected – I am never sure what my day will bring.”
