Burberry takes top spot in 2013's Multichannel & eCommerce Top 100 Movers & Shakers report
Burberry’s Mark Hopwood, Director of IT Business Relationships & Digital Commerce, and Christopher Bailey, Chief Creative Officer, have been placed as number 1 in this year’s ‘Top 100 Movers & Shakers Multi-Channel & e-Commerce’ report, produced by K3 Retail and the Retailinsider.
The annual report, which is now in its fourth year, names the top 100 key individuals making a difference to e-Commerce and multi-channel retail and was released at the Retail Systems Conference on 23rd September.
Nick Robertson, Co-founder and James Hart, Director, both of Asos were up two spots to second place this year and Angus Thirlwell, CEO and Melissa Shackleton, Head of Marketing, both of Hotel Chocolat were new entries in at number three.
The core aim of the report is to celebrate the achievements of the most influential people in this exciting part of the retail market, highlighting those who have really stood out in the world of multichannel over the past 12 months. These individuals comprised consultants, vendors, service providers, recruitment specialists, senior retailers, consultants, advisors and City analysts whose expertise straddled all areas of the sector.
Commenting on the new report, Tony Bryant, Head of Business Development at K3 Retail stated, “For 2013 I am delighted that the advisory board has carefully considered not only retailers but service providers, consultants, recruitment specialists and investors. This edition again shows the diversity of individuals and their roles and the significant contribution they make to retailing in the UK and globally.”
“Whatever we call it - Multi-Channel, Cross-Channel, Omni-Channel, the people behind retail channel management are doing some great things to keep up and also influence the anytime, anywhere, any product consumer.”
Produced in conjunction with Glynn Davis of the RetailInsider.com, the report takes into account the future rising stars in retail, whose potential will feature across the top 100.
Glynn Davis of Retailinsider.com, added, “What has remained constant through this report and its predecessors, is the great fluidity in the industry. There continues to be significant movement of people within the e-Commerce and Multi-Channel areas. This is undoubtedly driven by the shortage of experienced personnel who not surprisingly find themselves in great demand by retailers desperate to develop their digital capabilities.”
“Many of the same names appear in this report as in 2012 but in many cases they are now playing their trade with a different employer. It will be interesting to see if this movement continues throughout this next year.”
