LSA Opportunity Hub pres.
Alumni Connections: Elliot Faulk
Thursday, April 2, 2020: 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. EST | VIRTUAL
Hear from H&M Senior Business Controller, Elliot Faulk, during this virtual Alumni Connections session about his own career experience in international retail.
As an LSA undergrad, Faulk always knew he wanted a career that would take him abroad. “I was interested in the retail industry—one of the world’s largest industries—and interested both from the production side and the customer-facing side.” He landed a position in product development at Macy’s headquarters in New York City, a role that focused on international sourcing. Three years later, he sought a retailer that had a large global footprint —H&M—where he joined the fashion retailer’s team as a business controller and made a home in Stockholm, Sweden.
This is an informal, non-recruiting environment where you can ask questions and explore your interest in an industry with an alum.
