We asked our colleagues to share their career journey, and this is what they said!



ROX-ANNE GOVENDER – Brand Communications Specialist AW LAB Italy

“I come from the sunny city of Durban, in South Africa. I started at Bata South Africa as an assistant marketing manager before attaining the position of Brand Communications Specialist at AW LAB Italy end of 2021. In March 2022, I moved closer to the team, and I officially started my new role. I can say that the AW LAB culture is definitely a breath of fresh air for me. The brand is evolving on the retail side, but also on the innovation side, thus enhancing the group globally. I have been highly warmly welcomed by the team in Italy and I am really looking forward to making a meaningful difference.”



IFTHEKAR MALLICK Head of Marketing Malaysia & APAC

“I joined Bata Bangladesh mid-2018 and served the company as Marketing Head until early 2022. In February 2022, I moved to Bata Malaysia as the Head of Marketing for Malaysia and the APAC region which includes Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia, Thailand, and Singapore markets. Through my 4 years journey at Bata, I've met many professionals across the globe, worked with them as a team, and came up with Marketing solutions to serve our consumers better and make them feel more confident every day. The thing I really love about Bata is, the company operates to improve people's lives, providing opportunities for personal and professional growth.”
