We were grateful to get a few moments with David Sancho of MANGO to discuss their retail real estate development plan in the Asian market. Don’t miss this exclusive interview with one of the world’s hottest retailers!

In 2011 David Sancho became VP of International Expansion of MANGO retail stores and Executive Comitee Member. Born in Barcelona in 1976, David Sancho obtained a degree in Law and a Master’s Degree in Business Law from ESADE in 1999. In 2006 he was appointed Head of Properties. In 2007, he became a member of Real Estate Brokers Association (API) and, in 2010, a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

MANGO is a family owned Spanish retailer with 2,500 stores in 105 countries. MANGO arrived in China in 2002 and have since been looking to capitalize on the booming Asian market.

MANGO is already present with great partners in Korea, Japan, India, Singapore and Malaysia and their ambition is to keep the brand thriving.  He says his personal focus is on China: “We had 100 stores in March. By December, 200 stores. In 3 years we hope to have 700 stores.”
