Independent consultant, mentor & non-executive director within the fashion & clothing industry

Victor Rosenberg

I work as an independent consultant, mentor & non-executive director within the fashion & clothing industry. I am called upon by both established companies requiring specialised assistance & by start-ups navigating the trade for the first time. I also speak at events & seminars designed to broaden understanding of clothing manufacturing.

With over 45 years of diverse industry experience at every level, from the factory floor to the boardroom, I can bring solutions to the many challenges my clients face.  I have a rare comprehension of the complete clothing production cycle from the initial design sketch through to delivery of the finished product to the customer.

I am a problem solver, easily approachable, with a hands-on attitude.

In addition to resolving the particular problems encountered, I enjoy teaching my clients how to fix things for themselves, thus passing on the wisdom & experience I have gained over the years.
