Which ABG company would you want to work for and why?
I would like to work with ABG Fashion and Retail. Being in touch with ABG fashion in-house brands such as Louis Philippe, Allen Solly, People etc, I have developed a close connection to these brands. An opportunity to work with ABG Fashion and Retail would help me understand the working of each brand and my inclination towards operations will help me to know their supply chain better and help to update the same as per growing customer demands.
