Leading a giant group in an emerging economy means a lot of responsibility. Can you tell us something about you as a professional? How do you manage work?
When I entered Bagir Group, the first thing I had put on my desk was building a senior experienced management team who are highly motivated. We now have a very professional team and a special organizational structure which gives responsibility to our end market managers who are professionals in their fields and closer to our clients.
As far as our research is concerned, we could hardly find any brands from emerging economies making a mark in the international arena. But you have succeeded in doing this to a certain extent. You yourself claim that one in every six men in UK own a suiting made by the Bagir Group. How did you make that possible? Do you have suggestions to give to other brands from emerging economies?
Our company’s strength is in offering customers variety. We are into making different styles, both for the more conservative customers and for those of our customers for whom the design is more important. You can find our company in very different markets and segments of fashion and co-operates in Germany, UK, USA, and Australia. Once one of the segments is reduced, we have the knowledge to compensate in many ways. The power of innovation and great service we supply to the British market in the last 40 years made this happen.
