Deborah Weinswig joins ITFAS' board of directors
Mar '17
Deborah Weinswig, "retail technology's leading lady" and managing director of global think tank Fung Global Retail & Technology, has joined the board of directors of International Trading Fashion & Apparel Supply, the Hong Kong trading office of Kiabi. Weinswig brings expertise in the intersection of fashion, retail trends and technology solutions to ITFAS.
"I'm honoured to be invited to join ITFAS, which is at the forefront of supporting exciting new retailers. Kiabi truly is a global model for international apparel expansion, and I'm looking forward to sharing my thoughts and experience with the management team," Weinswig said. 
An advocate for innovation, creativity and the implementation of efficient technologies in retail, fashion and branding, Weinswig joined Fung Global Retail & Technology in 2014 with her unique viewpoints on the disruptive technology trends and innovations that are reshaping the global retail industry. She has helped US startups develop and implement retail technology systems and strategies, some of which have been adopted by top-tier national retailers. 
Weinswig also serves as a mentor to Silicon Valley accelerators and sits on the advisory boards of several early-stage companies in the US, Israel and Hong Kong. Her volunteer work includes serving on the boards of directors of Dignity U Wear, and as chief research officer and on the board of directors of GoodXchange.
"We wanted an external perspective from someone with global experience. No one fits that description better than Deborah Weinswig," said Juan Penagos, CEO of ITFAS. 
Kiabi, a French online family fashion retailer, is owned by the Mulliez family, which also owns retailers Auchan, Decathlon, Leroy Merlin and Boulanger. Founded in the Lille metropolis, the first Kiabi store opened in Roncq in 1978. The retailer specialises in ready-to-wear apparel for the whole family, and designs are created in-house by more than 50 designers. Kiabi operates 460 stores in 13 countries including France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Morocco, Poland and Russia, and serves over 20 million customers worldwide. (SV)
