TJX Europe , President
Louise Greenlees has enjoyed a long and varied career across a wide range of businesses from small start-ups to larger High Street favourites such as Topshop, Dorothy Perkins, River
Island and M&Co. Louise gained her experience in Buying & Merchandising, before moving into leadership and senior management roles. She joined TJX Europe in 2010 as Managing Director of the Homesense chain, the retail group’s second brand to launch in Europe following the success of TK Maxx. She took on the MD role for TK Maxx in Europe a couple of years later and became President of TJX Europe in early 2015.

Louise is passionate in her belief that the success of a business depends on its culture and people. She says “I’ve been very fortunate in my career to have had opportunities to grow and develop, to take risks and learn from mistakes. As leaders, we have a responsibility to inspire and encourage, as well provide both the environment and opportunity for every individual to fulfil her or his potential.”
