Featured speakers include Andy Ruben, founder of yerdle and former Chief Sustainability Officer and VP of Global Ecommerce Strategy at Wal-Mart, Gam Dias, founder and CEO of First Retail, Ami Arad, founder of Wingtip, and Rich Menendez, founder of Workshop Café. All presenters will explore how businesses can take a unique approach in order to succeed in a competitive retail landscape.

“The notion of ‘Breaking Things for the Better’, the theme of Ahead of the Curve SF, is not possible without taking a closer look at how to improve the retail assortment planning,” said Kevin J. Walker, General Manager of Manthan Americas. “Retailers need to take a holistic view of customer analytics. It’s not just a solution for marketers to derive optimized pricing, promotions and messaging. It’s a tool that can be used across the organization, including the merchandising and buying departments to re-define retail assortments for the better. It’s the next iteration of assortment planning, moving from localized to personalized assortments.”
The Ahead of the Curve SF is invitation-only and limited to 20 retail executives. For more information on this exclusive event, please visit the Ahead of the Curve SF event page.
