Rina Bhansali

Head of Merchandising, Harrods

After graduating with honours from Bombay University as a Chemistry student, Rina began her career in retail working for various companies such as Mulberry, Liz Claiborne and Boden.

Her first major break into the lifestyle category was working within the buying team at Jerry’s Home Store, a small family run business out of Chelsea. Rina’s career evolved across the next decade, covering many areas in the world of retail. Her expertise has been used in businesses across the country from Cargo Homeshops, Allders and House of Fraser.

In 2011 Rina took on the role of General Merchandise Manager for the Homewares department in Harrods, setting strategic and commercial direction for multiple categories ranging from Home accessories to Books, Writing, Stationery, Art and travel categories.

Rina regularly participates in hot yoga classes near to her home in St John’s Wood, North London. In early 2017, she embarked upon a 6 week road expedition from India to the UK, covering over 18 countries and 16,000kms, whilst raising money for The Railway Children’s charity.
