Empathy advocate

Brand Protection Manager, PVH
Group Created with Sketch.

We all know the feeling of relating to a character from a novel or short story. But can reading actually inspire empathy for people who are different from ourselves?

Tomas Elemans has spent his career protecting the TOMMY HILFIGER and CALVIN KLEIN trademarks from misuse and fraud. While he loves his job, Tomas says that some of the most interesting people he’s ever been acquainted with are the characters he’s met in books. He discovered his love of fiction through his mother, who taught literature at his local high school in Amsterdam. Tomas says he discovers new worlds through reading fiction and has taken away profound lessons from the pages of his favorite novels. When he’s not reading, he can be found talking about football or listening to music. Tomas graduated from Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam with a Master of Law.
