Change is common in the retail industry, but it’s safe to say we’ve faced more disruption in the past two years than many have encountered in their entire careers. As a result, we’ve seen a new breed of executive leader emerge, one who is innovative, solution-oriented and unafraid to take chances.
The Retail Innovator Awards were designed to raise up the retail leaders driving positive change for their organizations, whether in the form of new tech implementations, new store concepts or new cultural initiatives. But this year in particular, we wanted to spotlight executives who took new-world challenges and turned them into opportunities. These opportunities help drive more meaningful customer relationships, foster greater alignment and empowerment within their organizations, and even accelerate new revenue opportunities.
Meet the 2021 Retail Innovators who are driving the industry’s next great acceleration.
