TORONTO, March 21, 2018 /CNW/ - Kinetic Commerce is pleased to announce the appointment of Retail/Ecommerce Veteran Damon Sloane to the newly created position of Vice President of Retail Innovation & Client Success.
KINETIC COMMERCE is a leading retail design and technology firm with offices in Toronto and New York - specializing in helping enterprise retailers bring the best parts of digital and physical commerce together (creating more meaningful connections with their customers and empowering their associates to deliver superior service).
Sloane spent the last 4 years as the General Manager of Ecommerce and Digital with global luxury fashion retailer Michael Kors where he led the strategy and go-to-market launch of their ecommerce and omnichannel initiatives.
During his time with Michael Kors, the company underwent a digital transformation that resulted with the brand being named a 'digital genius' by L2 Inc (one of only two fashion brands to receive that status) and also a finalist in the Canada Post Ecommerce Innovation awards. Sloane was also the opening keynote speaker at the 2017 Drapers Digital Festival in London.
"The entire Kinetic Commerce Team is thrilled to team up with Damon," says Kinetic President and Chief Innovation Officer David Dougherty.
"His experience helping global retailers plan and deliver significant retail technology transformation projects will be a real asset to our current clients, future clients and to the whole team here at Kinetic. Damon represents 15 years of accumulated retail innovation and technology platform experience with companies such as Michael Kors, Aldo and Reitmans that we can now bring to our current and future clients."
Sloane (who is based in Montreal) also signals Kinetic's commitment to the Montreal market and its vibrant retail sector.
"I've been actively following Kinetic Commerce and their work with clients such as The Aldo Group, L'Oreal, Rona and Ivanhoe Cambridge for many years now," says Sloane.
"I'm excited to share the story of how Kinetic is transforming the in-store retail experience and driving real business outcomes for its customers. Together, we'll be leading the charge to make those implementations successful for our clients and their customers and sales associates."
