Interview with Ronan Hurley, COO, Luxola
How would you define the current momentum of the retail sector in Asia?
Where are the growth areas for your company?
There's plenty of room for growth in all 12 markets that we serve.
What challenges and issues keep you awake at night?
There's little that keeps me awake at night. You can only worry about what you have control over. In South-East Asia, there's a lot you can't control, you just keep giving it your best shot and try to be creative in finding solutions.
