More Information

I have a love for the outdoors and particularly developing technical apparel for the outdoors to meet the needs of the end user. With over 15 years of apparel design and product development experience at a Senior Level.

Currently I freelance as Director of Product Development for a company based in Texas. I specifically handle all aspects of product development overseas and some domestically. This includes making all technical specs, costing, production lead-time management, MOQ's, shipping logistics, and duty rates for "private label" brands that are then sold by the company wholesale to the particular private label client, who then sells it to their retailers both online and at locations nationwide.

In addition, it involved traveling as needed to attend trade shows relevant to the business, source materials, factory visits as needed and business meetings.

This is a skill set I've offered for over 5 years now working from home, product development, sourcing, delivery and profit producing. It saves the companies a tremendous amount of overhead on the development process.

I'm looking to offer my skills for an amazing brand or business as needed.

Kind Regards

Kristen Nielsen
