New Merchandising Team Make IMAX Showrooms Your Destination for Style This Summer
IMAX has built a reputation in the industry as trend and lifestyle experts. This summer, prepare to be carried away to exotic locations and destination hotspots at market. Our new merchandising team is hard at play, completely re-imagining the IMAX product line through globally inspired destination vignettes and curated collections for every style – not to mention loads of retail merchandising ideas ready to implement back home.
Robert Germain joined our team last fall and has fully embraced the role of Director of Merchandising for IMAX Worldwide Home. His vision and enthusiasm are energizing the line with brilliant visual inspiration that showcases the entire product line in a new light. Our summer market showrooms will feature the theme, “Destinations: The Inspiration Behind the Product,” and will take you on a style journey from Morocco to Manhattan, Santiago to San Francisco and beyond.
At the age of eighteen, Robert began working in floral design, and with the incredible support and encouragement that he received for his first floral basket, he found his path. His journey took him to Three Hands where he served as Merchandising Director for ten years, and has now led him to his destination at IMAX. Robert attributes his success as a visual merchandiser to his inherently creative flair, inspiration from the world around him and the bonus of a truly collaborative team.
Shannon Heer, who’s worked with Robert for years, joined his team when he came to IMAX and has painted her way into our hearts. Her vivacious vision, boundless energy and faux finish wall techniques take the showrooms to a next-level wow factor.
Completing the team, Lanier Castaneda and Chris Hancock keep things on-trend and ahead of the curve. With a youthful artistic perspective, solid design sensibility and a hands-on approach to work, they make things happen.
These four merchandising powerhouses have worked together for eight years and IMAX is thrilled to have them together again in our showrooms. Be sure to make IMAX Worldwide Home YOUR DESTINATION for summer markets.
