Andy Dunn, Senior Vice President of Walmart, June 26
Hitching a Rocket to an Engine, Bonobos and Walmart take off
Direct-to-consumer brands, born online, are shaking up traditional retail – and forward-thinking traditional retailers are embracing the new model. IRCE 2019’s Day One Keynote Speaker, Andy Dunn, formerly CEO of men’s apparel retailer Bonobos and now senior vice president of digital consumer brands at Walmart, will share how the key to unlocking the full potential of these digital brands may actually require physical stores. Bonobos, which Andy co-founded in 2007 right out of the Stanford graduate school of business and sold to Walmart a decade later, stars in a portfolio of brands acquired and incubated by Walmart as an investment in its digital future. Join this presentation to kick off IRCE 2019. You’ll learn why digital brands are growing at nearly triple the rate of e-commerce overall and why Andy believes the future of retail is beginning to resemble the history of video.
