1. Name, position in company, length of service
Brian White. I’ve worked as Managing Director at Radians Worldwide since April 2017.
2. Career progression – can you describe your career journey? How did you get to where you are now?
I began my PPE career with Gore-Tex within the fabrics division. It was a fantastic place to develop my knowledge while gaining a wide understanding of the International PPE market.
In 2001, I joined Sioen Industries, before moving to Kwintet Group as Director of International Business in 2009 and subsequently joining VF Imagewear workwear brands as International Managing Director in 2013.
My career and international experience have now lead me to Radians Worldwide, which is a perfect fit for me with the people and the culture. I now look forward to developing our strategy and ambition to grow and develop Radians’ presence in the global safety market.
3. Could you call any one thing a motivational force in your work, or is it a combination of factors? What is it/are they?
I have a passion for international business. I enjoy building a long-term network by connecting to other like-minded professionals. My aim is to constantly create and expand new and exciting business opportunities together with my network and colleagues by exploring trends, needs and synergies within the retail and industrial markets.
4. Can you cite a project you are particularly proud of, and give the reasons you were pleased with it?
I’m particularly proud of a complex project that was recently completed for a large Radians Worldwide retailer. The completion of this project to the satisfaction of the retailer and the Radians executive team gave me great pleasure, especially because I had only been with Radians for a few months. The successful execution and implementation of this project proved to me that Radians Worldwide has a great team with ambition and determination who are prepared to go the extra mile to please their customers.
