Maryam Patel, Senior Retail Delivery Manager, will lead the Maker Maxity project team for Vindico.
“We have delivered projects in the USA, UK and across the Middle East,” explains Patel, “so we understand the balance between the common processes that exist across international retail real estate markets, and the local nuances specific to each property. Having already prepared the online technical and fit out manual for Maker Maxity and kicked the process off with the Client team in India, we are looking forward to working with brands as we move forward into the design stages of delivery.
