“When you're finished changing, you're finished.”
Those famous words spoken by founding father Benjamin Franklin are as relevant in retail today as they were during the nation’s creation. It is those retailers that live on the cutting-edge and continue to innovate that are establishing the standard for growth and success and setting the pace for change in a constantly evolving industry.
It is no longer a successful strategy to follow the lead of the industry’s trendsetters. It is an imperative that retailers both big and small constantly innovate to capture the hearts, minds and wallets of today’s increasingly fickle consumers.
The 10 retail executives chosen for inclusion in RIS’ annual Pacesetters feature are all driving change through the introduction of cutting-edge technologies and strategies at their respective companies as well as setting the standard for innovative excellence across the industry.
