It’s always sad to see a familiar face in the industry depart, and this is certainly no exception.
It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye for now to Collette’s Australian General Manager, Alison Mead who has resigned to focus on family priorities, taking effect in mid-April.
“We’ve been delighted with the growth and opportunities which Alison has created for Collette since she launched the brand locally in 2014.”
“We are sorry to be losing such a talented leader who has established strong partnerships and solid growth for the company in Australia,” said Christian Leibl-Cote, Senior Vice President of International Business for Collette.
“I enjoyed bringing Collette to life in Australia, and I am deeply grateful for all the opportunities I have had during this time,” said Mead.
“The generous support provided by Collette as well as the strong culture of family, friendship and customer service have all been instrumental in making this such a satisfying position.”
“Our highly trained team will be very effective in taking the company to the next level,” added Mead.
James Hewlett and Amanda McCann (Heads of Marketing & Sales respectively) will lead the business growth and the teams locally going forward with Christian Leibl-Cote, Senior Vice President of Collette’s International Business being responsible for the overall business.
