Donna Kissoon has been the Export Manager at Vemco for over seven years with a proven track record for meeting and surpassing targets. She specialises in: distributor management; competitor analysis; data analysis; business process design & improvement; building supplier relationships; sales management; merchandising management; developing store layouts; brand management; training and development; and team building.
As a leader charged with the daunting task of understanding markets not in numbers but in people and culture, Donna says her personal philosophy is “Serving people: understanding who people are, appreciating them for who they are and understanding various cultures.” In the role of Export, she was able to grow and learn a lot about different cultures. It’s not a one size fits all approach for Donna – you really have to understand how cultures work to be able to tailor the brands for the respective markets.
Donna is keen on expanding the ever increasing export at Vemco to international markets and leading the race overseas. She graduated from the Arthur Lok Jack Graduate School of Business with a distinction in International MBA and BSc Management Studies from University of the West Indies.
