The NRF’s Top 25 People Impacting Retail in 2016

Each year, the National Retail Federation Foundation recognizes 25 “disruptors, dreamers, givers, influencers, and power players.”

Read on to access the 2016 list:
  • 2016’s Disruptors — They “are true originals who rock the boat with ideas so crazy, they just might work. These are the people who make you rethink what you thought you knew about retail, opening you up to new possibilities for your customers, your business and your world.”
  • 2016’s Dreamers — They “are rising stars who might be light on experience, but their heart, energy, and passion inspire everyone around them. They’re already making waves in their store, company or hometown with their fresh ideas, big dreams, and sky-high goals.”
  • 2016’s Givers — They “are inspirational change-makers and big-hearted optimists who make retail shine as a force for good. They see a need and use their skills and resources to fill it to the brim, bringing joy and new opportunities to their companies, communities and the whole wide world.”
  • 2016’s Influencers — They “are champions of retail, bridging the gap between the industry and the rest of the world. Whether they’re journalists, activists, innovators, or business leaders, they don’t work in retail — but they’re helping it evolve. They’re passionate, persistent, and intelligent, and their work is paving the way for innovative retailers everywhere.
  • 2016’s Power Players — They “are fearless leaders who never shy away from what others may see as insurmountable challenges. These top retail executives have more than just elite status — they have vision, passion, and heart. Their forward-looking decisions have a ripple effect across the industry, but they’re not afraid to take risks or push boundaries. They guide, inspire, and challenge us to move beyond the status quo.”
