Working for Milltex Group, Inc. in New York as the Director of Marketing & Operations was a fantastic experience! Not only did I get to continue to travel to Europe for work but I also traveled throughout the U.S. including major cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Dallas, Boston, Philadelphia, Greenwich and more to market and manage the company and its products.
One of my greatest honors was Victoria Secret’s trust and support in me – I was the only vendor allowed to produce a private label product for them between three countries in three years. Happy to report, my project management of the global production between New York, Italy, various cities in Asia and Ohio proved to be very successful for both Victoria Secret and Milltex Group, Inc.
