I am very pleased to announce that Heywood Wilansky has joined our Advisory Board. Heywood had a long and impressive career in retail, most recently retiring as CEO of Retail Ventures. He was also previously served as President and CEO of Filene’s Basement and The Bon-Ton Stores. His background in retail provides a valuable perspective on excess, overstock inventory, liquidator wholesale and how retailers deal with it. He has operated retail businesses that have had to address this issue first hand and he has operated a retailer that whose primary source of inventory was clearance, liquidation inventory.
I am looking forward to working with and learning from Heywood as we continue to broaden our presence among the top retail brands in the world.
