The fourth-year Fashion Management students were treated to a VIP visit to Panalpina, one of the world’s leading freight forwarders for luxury fashion.
They met with Dimitri Brink, the Country Head of Marketing & Sales, Cindy Woodcock, Senior Communications Professional, and Kevin Wallace, Country Industry Vertical Sales Manager - Luxury Fashion at Panalpina. The team organized a stellar presentation confiding the inner workings of the company’s organizational structure and operating schedule with the students, who were invited to take a seat in the company’s boardroom.
They were also given a warehouse tour by Dave Hammond, Business Unit Head of Logistics, where they not only came up close and personal with some luxury brands but also had the opportunity to walk into a mystery Canadian retailer’s closet!
“Super cool. Very cool to apply my knowledge to the actual industry!” was one student's concluding remarks!
