Stellar & Sage team

 

David Gubbin, Sage’s GM for Europe said of the brand ambassadors sourced by Stellar:

“The brand ambassadors are part of our team, they speak different languages and are based in different countries.

“I am able get a feel of what’s happening on the shop floor from them every single day and have a trust level with them that, if something’s not going right in the store, or something is going incredibly well, they can relay those key pieces of information back to me immediately.”
