    QUINZE&MILAN Kortrijk - Belgium

    Commercial Director

    Q&M was going through a very tough crisis, but he put an enormous amount of energy in it together with the team, and every aspect of the company was turned upside down to improve everything drastically. It worked out magnificently. The pricelist was unrecognisable compared to previous ones. 20 new agents / importers were installed, introduced 12 new collections, involving 9 new designers, and all of this practically without investing. And very fast, the turnover went up again.
