Each year, RETHINK Retail—the fastest growing retail media company in the world– awards the top names in retail by honoring those individuals as a “Top Retail Influencer”. Sponsored by Microsoft, the Top Retail Influencer award recognizes academics, analysts, association leaders, industry experts and media members who are at the forefront of retail industry thought leadership.
By receiving this honor, the awardees are welcomed into the Top Retail Influencer community– connecting them to the sister community of Global Retail Leaders, a collective of executives at the world’s leading retail companies and brands who guide the current state and future trajectory of the retail landscape.
With over 600 nominations, only a distinguished 200 influencers are inducted into this group after a rigorous selection process by RETHINK Retail’s team and advisors. To commemorate their influence in this industry, awardees will receive the digital honorary badge to display on their website and social media profiles. Members will also be honored in person at the “RETHINK Retail Bash” on Monday, January 16, 2023 in New York City during NRF 2023: Retail’s Big Show.
“With nominations spanning geographies and specialities, we are excited to release the next class of the Top Retail Influencers community and feature their expertise across thought leadership initiatives that expand our knowledge and push our efforts in driving this industry to innovate and thrive”, says Natalie Arana, RETHINK Retail’s Director of Brand Marketing & Communities.
The official Top Retail Influencer list of 2023 will be announced on January 11th, 2023. Sign up to be notified once the list is live here.
