About Frederik Schreve, Founder and CEO at OKTAVE
Frederik is passionate about luxury retail; he believes absolutely that it is the people
who make the difference. Why? Simply because he has worked many years on the shop floor.
Before setting up the luxury division of one of the world’s leading training and coaching organizations, Frederik spent 12 years in various operational and strategic positions in luxury brands.
He has worked on the shop floor as a sales consultant in London, Paris, Milan, and Monte Carlo; as store director for a leading jeweler on Place Vendôme; as Corporate Strategist in retail network development for the Europe region; and then as Retail Manager of premium and luxury brands for a large watch company.
Frederik is a global citizen who has also lived and worked in Mexico and the US. He facilitates in French, Dutch, English, German, and Italian. His wide experience has given him a deep understanding and vision for driving luxury retail business forward.
At OKTAVE he has brought together an incredible team of unique, elite trainers who work daily with their finger on the pulse of the luxury retail market. Together, they help brands to organically accelerate their in-store business performance by focusing on developing front-line teams through stimulating and impactful methods, to achieve growth and sustainable results.
He loves classical and pop music: with OKTAVE he conducts teams to take their performance up an octave.
His favorite song is Learning to fly from "Pink Floyd".
‘Music is the expression of individual and collective talent, authenticity and emotions; music is about sharing love, generosity and passion; music is the art that transcends boundaries, bringing people, generations, and cultures together.
At Oktave this is what we do.’
