Leer de Mensen bij Esprit kennen!

Wat zou een bedrijf zijn zonder de mensen? Iedereen heeft een verhaal te vertellen en we zijn enorm trots op de mensen die ons geweldige bedrijf tot 'top of its game" brengen. Drink dus een kop koffie, en neem even de tijd om de mensen achter het merk te leren kennen, wat hen inspireert en hoe ze lid werden van de Esprit Familie!


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

"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

Ontmoet John

Head of Design, ESPRIT Women Design Department

                     

John Connor werd geboren inBelfast, Noord-Ierland. Toen hij 19 was, verhuisde hij naar London, tegen de droom van zijn ouders in, die in hem een politieman zagen. In Londen studeerde hij aan het wereldberoemde kunst en design college Central Saint Martins, waar ook John Galliano en Alexander McQueen gestudeerd hebben. "Die ervaring heeft de manier waarop ik naar de wereld kijk fundamenteel veranderd", zegt hij. John begon als mode-illustrator, maar hij wilde weten hoe kleding werd samengesteld, hoe ze werd gestructureerd

                                                        

Dat leidde tot het maken van patronen en uiteindelijk ontwerpen, werk dat hem naar Londen, New York en Milaan bracht. De rol van John bij Esprit is om ervoor te zorgen dat er een rode draad door de Women's collecties loopt. Nadat de richting voor elke reeks is bepaald, begint hij te reizen, inspiratie op te doen en te schetsen. Voor John is de essentie van Esprit kwaliteit en prijs-kwaliteitverhouding, "outfits die onze klant door de seizoenen heen kan dragen."
