Doug Stebbins on the Retail Outlook
Consensus Advisors‘ Managing Director Doug Stebbins joins me today for an interview about the retail industry. Consensus Advisors is a boutique investment banking and financial advisory firm which focuses on retail and consumer products.
Doug head up the Valuation, Benchmarking and Analytical Services Group and created the Retailer Health Ratings™ which I’ve previously posted about. Doug comes from a background with various financial institutions so he brings a great business and quantitative perspective to the retail industry.
I’m sure you’ll get a lot out of his remarks about:
- the delicate balance of managing inventory and meeting demand
- how retailers can grow by working “the fringe,” and
- the importance of a strong brand to fuel e-commerce growth
