Andrew Liston


I have a successful track record of more than 20 years in the business of Luxury Retail. This success has come from a passion for Luxury goods and fashion and an equal passion for developing top talent. Enthusiasm and positive energy is infectious and I use my enthusiasm for Fashion/ Luxury to energize my teams around a brand and it's vision. Once the vision is established and strategy is set we can nimbly navigate the ephemeral landscape of the retail world. We need to be able to adapt quickly to changing strategies, to capitalize on trends, adjust to inventory needs, fiscal demands, etc. and a strong leader can minimize the fray caused by these sudden changes. Once you sell the “Vision” of the brand, everything else speaks to that vision and it’s very straight forward - Impeccable service, clienteling, store standards, merchandising, visuals all fall into place once the vision is established and committed to. Having had the pleasure of working with some of the best leadership in Luxury, I always seek to improve my business acumen and learn better ways to do business. This being said, I am constantly improving myself through exposure to educational materials and mentors and resources. "If you're not busy being born, you're dying" as Bob Dylan said. I have made a career of exceeding expectations. Specialties: A strong and creative leader specializing in building sales in Luxury goods and fashion by developing teams to understand and optimize Clientele Relationship Management and creating New Business Initiatives to attract unique clients and bring brand awareness and elevation through exceptional service.
