Sharath Kanth is a Brand & Retail Management Extraordinaire. In his short career span, he has played several key & crucial roles in Merchandising, Buying, Operations and Projects for various retail international brands across diverse business lines & locations. Sharath pursued various roles and overcame many challenges to make him a successful retail professional at a young age. He has moved up the corporate ladder after top tier management training in General Management, Brand Management and Retail Merchandising from the Indian Institute of Management – Ahmedabad. He has worked with power retail brands from Europe, the US, the Middle East and India, viz. Kenneth Cole, The Children's Place, New Look, MAX, Indigo Nation, Urbana, etc. in India, the GCC and North Africa. Sharath has consistently delivered business growth in large & stable markets, like the GCC, even though it is considered as one region. However, the various countries have their own respective business regulations, market preferences, customer demographics, which by themselves post a huge challenge for the overall growth and future of the brand. He was able to convert obstacles into opportunities, and the exposure, learning & success gave him the push & confidence to engage in more complex & culturally different regions like Egypt, Algeria, Libya & Tunisia. He has continued to bring success, growth and laurels to the brand, customer and the emerging markets.
