Some industries think they have it tough – and then there is retail. From constantly shifting consumer demand and intense competition to razor thin margins and a huge workforce, succeeding as a retail executive requires courage and conviction.
Scott Luton recently spoke with Marie Hurst, Vice President of Operations and Logistics with Bunzl Retail Services, a division of Bunzl Distribution North America. She has deep retail experience in transportation, process improvement, supply chain, and reverse logistics.
In this conversation, Marie and Scott talk about:
• How the high cost of labor is changing the way they manage their operations and even lay out facilities
• The tight margins in the retail supply chain that force companies to be thoughtful about their margins
• Ways ambitious professionals can position themselves for consideration as supply chain executives
