  • I am coming to the end of fixed contract period with a UK based brand, which I joined after working as the Merchandise Director of a well known American brand. I have been looking for a new role for a couple of months now and in menswear the role in wholesale just doesn't seem to be there. How viable is a move to retail on a similar level to what I had before (wholesale merchandising / brand development)?
