Malin has worked with assortment and product development throughout her professional career. She started at H&M and worked there for 8 years in a variety of positions both in Sweden and in Asia. Later on, she worked as a Purchasing & Production Manager at Peak Performance for 8 years. Moreover, Malin has both leadership training and a master’s degree in international economics from the University of Uppsala.
Malin will start her new employment as the Design & Purchasing Director at Lindex on Mars 2. Lindex purchasing department currently consists of 200 employees. Designers, buyers, controllers, product developers, to name just a few in the teams, are all involved in creating fashion for the fashion chain’s more than 480 stores in 16 countries.
Malin has strong leadership skills, extensive international experience and shares Lindex values – qualities that I believe will result in an even better offer to our customers, says Sofia Brax.
This year Lindex celebrates 60 years of fashion and recently they had a very successful celebration in Gothenburg, where the company’s history, present and future was brought to the attention, not least because of the ongoing collaboration with fashion icon Jean Paul Gaultier. Lindex has since its start in 1954 continued to grow by developing their affordable and inspiring collections, and established themselves as one of Europe’s leading fashion retailers.
“I’m very impressed by Lindex development in recent years, both in terms of assortment and how it is presented to the customers. Much has happened and improved. There have also been many exciting external design collaborations. I hope and believe that with my experience I can reinforce and clarify the offer to our customers further. I’m really looking forward to becoming a part of Lindex skilled team and continue on the journey together,” says Malin Lindgren.
