Retail is filled with passionate, creative and motivated people. Our industry has the power to spark impressive change and build extraordinary careers. Part of our mission is to demonstrate the endless opportunities in retail, and one way we do this is through The Visionary and The List of People Shaping Retail’s Future (The List). 

The Visionary and The List celebrate the people making a tremendous impact on retail. Each year, we recognize those determined idealists, inspirational change-makers, champions of retail and fearless leaders who are powering our industry and pushing it forward.
