Facebook ranks number 1 in 2011’s Movers & Shakers Report.
K3 Retail and Retailinsider.com’s 2011 Movers & Shakers report ranks the top 30 individuals who are making waves in multi-channel retail, and for the first time, moves to a total list of 100.
Included in this year’s report is Mark Zuckerberg, Founder and CEO of Facebook, Tim Cook CEO of Apple, Natalie Massenet, founder and executive chairman of Net-A-Porter.com, and K3 Retail customers Simon Harrow, chief operating officer at Kiddicare, and Alison Lancaster, Cross Channel director of White Stuff.
This 2nd edition Movers & Shakers report celebrates the work and achievements of people who drive multi-channel in retail. This year sees many new names, which is indicative of how fast this dynamic sector is changing.
Tony Bryant, Business Development Manager at K3 Retail, said, “What is great about this year’s report is again the diversity of individuals and their roles, and in some ways shows just how dynamic and fluid Multi channel retailing is in the UK and globally. On behalf of K3 Retail, I would like to thank all 100 named individuals and the businesses they represent for all the fantastic ‘entrepreneurial’ work they have done in the space and also somehow managing to stay ahead of the curve in this ever changing retail environment in which we work.”
Glynn Davis of Retailinsider.com, adds, “The fact that there are so many new names in the list this year, shows just how young the industry is and also how immature it remains. There is an opportunity for skilled individuals to quickly make their mark – but equally there is the chance of rapidily falling out of favour.”
