Prior to his appointment as COO, Rostin served as the managing director of Zalora’s Cluster Market – comprising Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei, Hong Kong and Taiwan, leading the performance and business plan within these markets.

Rostin co-led the alignment of Zalora’s operations to suit both the nuanced fashion demands of the markets its serves while developing a supporting supply chain that is not only functional but also brings new competitive layers to the business. He helped transform Zalora’s supply chain, starting with the consolidation of its distribution centres into a single operation location serving the majority of its markets, paving the way for the establishment of Zalora’s current regional e-fulfilment hub in Malaysia.

I am confident that with Rostin at the helm of our operations, Zalora will continue to wow fashion consumers in Asia, by offering the best online shopping experience.”
