Interview with Fiona Hamilton 

What are the philosophy and drivers behind the International Retail Group ?

Fiona Hamilton :

The future is not what it used to be, in our retail landscape. In these unprecedented times where consumers are more demanding and retailer competition is evolving in both the physical and virtual world, brands are now required to develop a deeper and emotional connection to the consumer and transactions.

Times are changing. On a global basis the consumer is directing retailing. There has been a shift from buying and selling to integration. Retailing is no longer just about delivering stores if a brand is to be succeed.
