“Regrettably, I will be departing from Flemingo International due to irreconcilable professional differences with Dubai management,” says Brandwain.


When TRBusiness reached out to the retailer for a comment on Brandwain’s departure, Simon Forde, Group Chief Operating Officer at Flemingo International, said: “As a rule, we don’t comment on an individual’s personal decision to leave Flemingo. We do however wish Javier much success in whatever he chooses to do next.”
