A Word

From Philip Bianchi, CEO

“The dramatic context of Covid has brought to the daylight the failing level of preparation of most retailers in the face of this situation, and this despite those millions invested in e-commerce over the past couple of years. Like for the rest of the world, this pandemic has a hard impact on retailers and brands, who are seeing their ability to respond largely diminished. At Proximis, we believe the consumer is the key. It is urgent for Retail Executives to reconsider choices made before the crisis and focus on the promise given to consumers.

We created the New Retail Leaders community to provide a unique place for sharing best practices with peers, empower each member with practical and expert knowledge, support each one with an unprecedented international professional network.”
