Fashion House Group appoints Cornelia Nicolae as retail operations director in Bucharest
One of Europe’s leading fashion outlet retailers, Fashion House Group, has appointed retail veteran Cornelia Nicolae to the position of Retail Operations Director in Bucharest.
In the newly created role, she will be responsible for launching the Group’s new flagship development, its second in Bucharest, while continuing to drive footfall and sales at its established outlet centre in the capital.
With 24 years of fashion retail experience, Cornelia joins Fashion House Group from Italian fashion brand Stefanel. As Retail Sales Manager for Eastern Europe, she managed the retailer’s operations in Romania, Turkey, Germany, Austria and Poland, overseeing significant revenue growth across 59 direct stores, seven outlets and 350 people.
Her appointment further underlines the importance of Romania to the Group’s ambitions, following its investment in Bucharest with the opening of a second outlet, a release shows. The 13,000 sqm development, near Cernica (exit from A2 motorway), began construction earlier this year and is scheduled to open by Spring 2021. The Centre will accommodate 59 stores and the Group is already over 50 per cent let.
