We are delighted to have placed Cath Kidston’s new Latin America boss Michael Engelhaupt. This is a bold move for Cath Kidston, taking on a new territory, particularly with the economic challenges in the region. The British vintage fashion and home retailer is concentrating on its operations in Mexico and Chile, opening stores and concessions there, with an eye on expanding across the region, and have hired Michael to lead their new venture. Negotiating the complex transition from Under Armour to Cath Kidston in this region is testament to the strength of the partnership between Cath Kidston and Endaba. Michael is a global player; he brings energy and commercial astuteness to the brand and is a great asset to them.
“Throughout our search for a Regional Head to develop our business across Latin America, the support we received from the Endaba team was second to none. The candidates Endaba presented us with all perfectly matched our specific brief and Endaba’s global unwavering end-to-end support was impressive. The team were readily available for consultation calls and one to one meetings. From our initial brief, Endaba was able to pinpoint exactly what was important for the appointment, not only from a nuts and bolts ‘can-they-do-it’ perspective, but also a keen sense, focus and understanding of which individual would be the best fit to work within Cath Kidston’s brand culture. We are extremely happy with the quality of the candidates presented and our final placement. Job well done!” Daniel Poppleton, International Director, Cath Kidston
