The founder and CEO of BEDGEAR, a global performance lifestyle brand, Eugene Alletto, has been selected as one of the winners of the prestigious 2018 Retail Innovator Awards under the Disruptor category.
In its fifth year, the Retail Innovator Award recognizes retail executives who are focused on driving change, using groundbreaking strategies and technologies. A retail innovator, BEDGEAR created a seamless end-to-end consumer experience with complimentary digital and in-store components while consistently executing an omni-channel retail strategy.
“It was a great year for disruption in the retail industry,” said Debbie Hauss, Editor-in-Chief of Retail TouchPoints. “We are impressed by the innovative and unique strategies, technologies and ideas retail executives launch into the increasingly competitive retail marketplace. Undeterred by talks of a ‘Retail Apocalypse,’ these pioneers are forging forward with long-term sustainability as their goal.”
Mr. Alletto was honored on Wednesday, May 2nd at the Retail Innovation Conference, hosted annually by Retail TouchPoints in New York City. During his session, he spoke to BEDGEAR’s success with global in-store experiences and how to be additive to your industry. Audience members included New York-based media and other nationally recognized executives in the retail space. Currently, BEDGEAR is located in more than 4,000 stores and 10+ countries and is working faster than ever to keep up with unprecedented demand.
“I am humbled to have received a Retail Innovator Award and be recognized among my fellow leaders at the conference who, like BEDGEAR, are driving change in the retail industry,” said BEDGEAR CEO Mr. Alletto, of his recent win. “BEDGEAR is focused on pushing our consumers past their limits to embrace new thinking to drive progress and this award validates that strategy. We thank Retail TouchPoints and our customers for giving us this recognition.”
