Strengthening relationships

“It is an immense honour to lead the team in the UK & Ireland and work towards expanding the brand’s presence in the region,” said Mach.

“Over the next 12 months, our vision for the UK spa channel is to establish Natura Bissé as a top-tier player in the industry by continuing to innovate.

“We will focus on exceptional experiences, prioritising sustainability, strengthening the relationships with current partners and building mutually beneficial strategic partnerships.”
