It is no doubt that Simon’s rich retail background lends to his firm’s exceptional capacity to support this practical innovation process. Prior to launching his firm, Simon led the ALDO Group’s “Store of the future” initiative. He quickly came to realize that there was a gap among the industry leaders around him. The modern retail world was lacking well-rounded leaders who could navigate across multiple business units to perfect and implement their visions for the future, from conception through implementation.
Simon has a profound passion for commerce, in all its facets. He understands that sales, operations, human resources, eCommerce, customer service, supply chain, distribution, buying, finance and marketing must all be leveraged to achieve substantial results.
Thanks to his down-to-earth strategic approach, unique skillset and flawless executional range, Simon is known for his ability to improve results by changing how organizations deal with internal and external customers in the context of technology and innovative processes.
Canadian Tire has a history of leadership as it relates to store design and concept delivery and Carolyn’s primary responsibility is to shape the vision of the in-store shopping experience for one of Canada’s most iconic and beloved brands.
