Stanislas Libmond is a Manager with Alvarez & Marsal Consumer and Retail Group in New York. After multiple internships in the retail and luxury industries, he joined A&M CRG full-time in February 2021 as an Associate.
Here’s an account – in Stan’s words – of a typical day on the road working as an A&M Manager.
Visiting clients on-site is to me a key component of my experience at CRG. It is a truly unique way to build relationships with our clients, which undoubtedly lead to better buy-in of our recommendations! It is also a fun way to engage with team members.
You constantly learn about a new part of the business and it keeps the job exciting!
The days as consultant can be demanding but are always incredibly rewarding – the ability to work directly with clients and make a tangible impact on their business is what makes the job so fulfilling!
Stan’s client is a portfolio of multiple brands, focusing on men’s and women’s apparel, sportswear, and sports equipment, as well as homewares. The company brought on A&M to lead their international expansion: from identifying the relevant markets to go after to implementation.
Stan has worked to identify key markets to enter, based on a scoring of their attractiveness. He currently focuses on price benchmarking across Europe as well as on supply chain aspects of the launch in Canada and in Europe.
