Glassons secures top Australian fashion buyer
Hallenstein Glasson Holdings Limited has appointed a leading Australian retail fashion executive as Glassons’ new General Manager of Merchandise.

Ms Quanchi says, “We’re thrilled to be appointing someone of Tali’s calibre and experience to the key Glassons buying role.  Buying is a crucial function in the fashion business, particularly in tough trading conditions.  The right buying direction can make or break a brand and we’re delighted to have Tali on board to lead Glassons’ overall fashion direction into the future.”
