Over the years our team has worked with some of the largest brands, retailers and procurement agencies in Australia and around the world. Here's some of the things they have to say about us ...
"Meriel has a wealth of knowledge in clothing industry matters from technical to business/supply chain to tendering. She is enthusiastic, committed and reliable. In association with her Partner at ATI Group Paula Rogers, Meriel and Paula have a great deal of expertise to offer". Roy Bird, Defence Materiels Organiation, Australia
“It is clear to all those who have worked with her, that Paula has an inherent understanding and passion for apparel and textiles. At Colby/Li & Fung, where we worked together, Paula drove the development and implementation of the global operations & compliance system for approx. 6,000 factories, at a time when few had considered such initiatives. It is this type of vision, drive and intuitive approach that places Paula apart, and keeps her ahead of the pack. I would have no hesitation in recommending Paula, as her dynamic thought process tends to yield exceptional results. “
Ignacio Lopez, Senior Vice President - Operations, Global Sourcing, Walmart
“Extremely well organised and managed difficult assignments with confidence; Meriel was responsible in developing and controlling a substantial importing program of millions of dollars”.
John Maguire, Managing Director, Drizabone
“Paula consistently comes up with creative proposals on building awareness on matters surrounding sustainability supply chain that face our industry today. So much of this work is about building relationships and respect within the industry, and Paula not only enjoys but excels in this. Her sense of strategic direction and ability to identify critical points is outstanding. In a very short time since she started with TFIA, Paula has demonstrated that she is self motivated, has considerable initiative and a willingness to engage in a broad range of issues. Her considered and diplomatic approach is engaging and CEOs of textile companies are very comfortable in her presence”
Jo Kellock, CEO, Council of Textile & Fashion Industries of Australia (TFIA)
“The Export Cluster Workshop was most professionally managed and the line-up of speakers (with their in-depth market information) was really impressive. T & I should feel privileged to be partnering with such professionals.”
Viola Lee, Trade & Investment (NSW)
“Paula is very cool under pressure”.
Howard Parry Husbands, M.D. Pollinate, Australia
“Paula provides good frameworks to present a cogent argument. Commercial brand management is familiar territory for her, along with extensive [knowledge of] off-shore supply management. I really liked your idea of the innovation budget for the prime so they work for us and we retain the IP”.
Ric Hanger, Defence Materiels Organisaton (DMO), Australia
I have been meaning to write and say thank you for your input of late. It is great to bounce ideas around and hear your perspective of logical sequences to prepare a product ready for exporting.
Jennifer Regan, Bridal Designer, Australia
