He elaborated as to how his day to day job consists of diverse activities ranging from looking over the minute details to the overall management of operations like that of Marketing, HR etc. Omar believes that Gloria Jeans as a brand represents a certain type of lifestyle for its consumers.
Striking a contrast between responsibilities of a startup executive director to that of a business executive director, Omar says that the responsibilities remain more or less the same for both however, for startup directors it’s comparatively a more complex and complicated process. Omar believes that for startups it is utmost important to keep hold of the dream and their goal and to work towards achieving this dream.
