How I got here Stuart Brown 
Interview by James Knowles

Tesco’s F&F franchise merchandise planning manager talks to Drapers about his internationally focused role and how to build a career in merchandising.

What does your diary look like today?StuartBrown_FandFTesco
This role has quite a broad remit and there are a lot of meetings involving many different departments throughout the business. For example today I had a risk and opportunities conference call with our Saudi partner talking about their stores, how they’re trading, helping them to maximise the profit return for their stores. I also have a meeting with the IT department here covering future requirements to support the growth. Finally we had a trade review with a couple of our core teams, sharing information and ideas to help offer better ranges to our customers in our franchise markets.
