Time to get acquainted with Nick, watch lover, sales expert and Head of Retail and Operations for Loupe

So Nick, how did your journey to becoming Head of Retail and Operations begin?

“My journey started almost 20 years ago while studying for my degree in Marketing and Management, I started off in a showroom working part-time to help pay for my studies. I instantly fell in love with luxury watches and jewellery and after becoming a store manager, I moved on to become a buyer.

After several years, I was promoted to Head of Category within buying which then led me into the position I’m in today. The mix of both my retail and buying knowledge really strikes a balance and is the ideal background for my role."
