Recently we announced the addition of two executives to the Newgistics team and gave the readers of our blog the opportunity to get to know Mike Hill better. This week, it’s Debbie’s turn!
Debbie brings more than 10 years of e-commerce experience to Newgistics. Having worked at LivePerson, ATG, Demandware and Amplience, she is creative and passionate about building unique and customized solutions for her clients. She has worked with numerous branded manufacturers, fashion brands and retail companies such as Brooks Brothers, Diane von Furstenberg, Elie Tahari, Elizabeth Arden, L’Oreal, Sleepy’s and Unilever, and takes a consultative approach to selling, guiding her clients through selection, implementation, site management and ongoing support.
Debbie enjoys working with fashion-forward brands and retailers who are looking to take their online presence to the next level. She understands both the challenges and opportunities that her clients face in delivering on their omni-channel initiatives. Debbie joined Newgistics in order to provide the full technology stack to address those initiatives and positively Impact her clients’ revenue growth.
Debbie has hit the ground running and is looking forward to bringing her creative energy to Newgistics’ customers. We sat down with Debbie to talk about the trends she is most excited about:
Omni-channel strategy and its implementation is one of the biggest challenges retailers face right now and, as such, it is one of the areas I am most excited to tackle this year. Coming from an e-commerce platform provider, working with Newgistics will allow me to better offer my customers comprehensive solutions for the omni-channel world with our end-to-end solution. Newgistics has the ability to paint this clear picture with both on- and off-line behaviors and integrated order management and fulfillment.
My favorite thing about working in e-commerce is how often things change. Technology is updated, shopping behaviors transform and retailers must continually innovate to outperform their competition. So ask me again in six months and my favorite trend could be something we don’t even know about today!
