Operations Lead ASIA

Launched in January 2012, Stanley & Stella is a rapidly growing young Belgian company. We are an international wholesaler offering casual, fashionable and organic attire (turnover rose by 38% in 2016).

Sustainable development is at the heart of the company’s DNA and is partly responsible for its current success. All our products are made with respect for human beings, nature and the environment.

Listening to and satisfying our customers (whether they are professionals in the promotional sector or developers of their own retail brand) is essential in order to guarantee our future expansion.

Proud of our success in the field of promotion, corporate apparel and merchandising, we will soon be creating our own Retail division and launching a completely new brand that is innovative, contemporary, modern, elegant and sustainable. Our products will be available in exclusive boutiques and for sale across Europe on our e-commerce website.

Our first shop will open soon in Antwerp, with an area of 650m². The exceptional building that will house our activities is unique and innovative – worthy of this ambitious project.

With a view to achieving this exceptional growth, we are looking for our new:
