Filip Sedic

In this instalment of Luxury Marketing, we are joined by Filip Sedic, CEO of LELO. Specializing in high-end pleasure objects, LELO's entrance into China aims to offer a more discreet and stylish alternative to the existing market. Aimed at the luxury segment, there is a definite challenge for LELO to communicate this concept to its Chinese consumers. As 'luxury' in this region still refers namely to more conspicuous consumption of products such as handbags, cars and jewellery, LELO must educate its targeted market about the concept of luxury for one, rather than for show. Sedic feels such a change is already in motion and adheres to his vision of luxury marketing as 'open minds, different perspectives and new light'. Watch this iTV-Asia interview to find out more.

Filip Sedic is the founder and CEO of LELO, a leading Swedish design label operating in the high end health and pleasure market. Founded in 2003, LELO is taking on the Chinese market with pleasure objects aimed at the luxury market. Sedic's passion for luxury marketing is evident, and embraces the challenge of presenting products in a different light and from new perspectives.

Before founding LELO, Mr Sedic served as a project manager for the third generation radio base stations at Ericsson. Sedic left this position to fully focus his efforts on the development of LELO. Prior to his tenure at both LELO and Ericsson, Sedic developed software for Fibro System AB. He also founded one of Sweden's first Internet companies, Internet Marketing Centre, in the dawn of the IT-era.

Filip Sedic holds a graduate electrical engineering degree.
