Multi-channel and e-commerce is one of the few bright, shiny spots within retail so it is no surprise that there is great demand for people with expertise in this field.
This was one of the reasons why last year Retailinsider.com launched the first Multi-channel/e-commerce Movers & Shakers report. We wanted to find out who were the most influential people in this part of the industry as well as the potential future stars.
K3 Retail has again sponsored the report, which for 2011 has grown into a Top 100 – from a Top 70 last year. This recognises both that the practitioners in this part of the market are becoming a bigger part of the retail sector as a whole and that the report has gained a more established presence (I hope).
In contrast to last year an Advisory Panel of industry figures was appointed to place the top 30 names in the list in order of influence and power. The remaining 70 are in alphabetical order.
We are grateful to John Bovill of Jacques Vert, Simon Russell of John Lewis, David Smith of IMRG, Christina Starkey of Odgers Berndtson and Jonathan Wall of Shop Direct Group for generously giving up some of their time and sharing their vast knowledge.
This has helped make this year’s report a much better guide to who exactly are retail’s real movers and shakers in 2011. If you don’t believe me then please download the report.
And if you require a hardcopy version then please contact Retailinsider.com on firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get one sent out to you.
And finally, if you enjoy reading the report then please take a moment to stick your email address in the box at the top right handside of this website/blog where it says ‘Subscribe’. Anything that I post on the site will then wing its way into your email in-box at no cost whatsoever.
