The Merchandising division is one of the largest and most important pillars of our client. They insure that the right products are on the shelves, at the right price in order to drive sales and brand dominance and product authority.

This person will be a part of the team that is at the feet on the streets for Merch and they spend time in the stores insuring that what the customer sees and purchases is what is going to drive revenue. Over the past 2 years, they have been making efforts to become more proactive rather than reactive by attempting to understand customer buying patterns and hypothesizing how to drive traffic and purchases. An example is that they have a responsibility over the aisle end cap (the end of an aisle that displays hardware product) and running diagnoses, research and tests to insure that the aisle end caps are displaying the most effective product that will drive more revenue.
