As the retail industry has transformed from a predominantly family-owned industry to that of national and international retail chains, the demand for executives who can provide a return on invested capital and improve operating costs, all the while helping their companies distinguish themselves in a crowded industry, has become fiercer. In today's retailing world, the current focus has shifted to supply chain efficiency that supports customer service and enables consumers to purchase effortlessly and seamlessly through multiple channels. New store formats and an ever-changing concept of how consumers connect with goods and services is also pushing the retail landscape and driving the demand for discerning leaders who can navigate through the options and make decisions that will have long-term financial impact and build brand clarity.
