Scala has appointed Marilena Popescu as its new international account manager for the region which includes Italy, Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Croatia and Slovenia. Marilena was born in Romania, but comes from a Hungarian family. Currently residing in Rome, Italy, she will work for Scala remotely, closer to her customer accounts, enabling her to visit retailers’ locations for personal, face-to-face contact.
Marilena is fluent in multiple languages, including English, French and Italian, and her working experience in sales spans various industries including high fashion, lingerie and most recently, four years in the environment of religious/devotion articles at the Vatican City – we imagine her new role at Scala will be quite a contrast to her previous one. Outside of the office Marilena enjoys being outside in nature, trekking, and rope climbing. “When the weather doesn’t allow me, or my muscles give me sorrow, I give new life to antiques by restoring vintage furniture,” she said. She is also a lover of animals, volunteering for the Italian National Association ‘Protezzione Civile’, on projects helping animals in need, such as abandoned or lost dogs and cats.
“We’re confident Marilena’s extensive international sales experience, language skills, and caring, social personality will ensure she’ll provide a premium level of service to all her customer accounts,” said Scala. “We hope our Italy and Eastern European customers will soon have the chance to meet Marilena, as we’re sure they’ll love her as much as we did the moment we met her. Her friendly, professional and hard-working nature guarantees she will go the extra mile to help retailers succeed.”
