Simply Retail, the nation’s leader in healthcare retailing has recently hired Andy Studwell-Alstad as the director of retail discovery. Studwell-Alstad comes to Simply Retail with more than 20 years in visual marketing.

Before coming to Simply Retail, Studwell-Alstad worked at the corporate office for Best Buy as the visual and space manager for the “home entertainment enthusiast" domain nationally. Studwell-Alstad is confident that her strong background in visual marketing will be a great fit in her position at Simply Retail.

“It’s what I do best," Studwell-Alstad said. "I can walk into a room and literally see the possibilities right in front of me.”

While at Simply Retail, Studwell-Alstad will be the head of the “retail discovery” department, where clients are given a detailed report of their retail opportunities from weeks of extensive interviews, on-site visits, demographic research and several other factors that make each healthcare facility unique.

“It’s going to keep me busy,” she said, “I literally tremble at the opportunities that exist for our clients and the communities they serve. One of the reasons I jumped at a chance to work with Simply Retail is that working in the healthcare industry affords the chance to give back- to make a difference in people’s lives.
