Vendis Capital invests in Humanoid

Investment fund Vendis Capital will invest into the Dutch fashion brand Humanoid. One of the consequences of that collaboration is that Yvonne van Dormael will now become the fashion company's new CEO.

"Important step"

"The Vendis Capital partnership is an important step for Humanoid. The company is ready for a new growth phase and with Vendis Capital and their consumer knowledge on board, we have found the right partner to do so", co-founder Hans Boelens said.

 

Hans Boelens used to be Humanoid's CEO, but he will relinquish his responsibilities to Yvonne van Dormael. The other co-founder, Sandra Harmsen, will still be in charge of Humanoid's creative output as she will be the creative director.

 

"We are very happy to join Humanoid. We are impressed with its strong position in the attractive and affordable luxury clothing branch, which is because of it consistency and dedicated focus on quality and comfort over the past 30 years", Vendis Capital's Michiel Deturck said.
