About me section iconAbout me

WHAT I DO: I help local and multinational retailers in South East Asia to increase sales and reduce costs across all categories by providing astute retail strategy advice, consultation, training and coaching. WHO I WORK WITH: I partner with retailers in South East Asia by working with: • CEOs wanting to improve their business model and commercial strategy • CFOs looking to reduce costs and boost commercial gross margins • Chief Commercial Officers needing to develop their teams capability WHY IT WORKS: I help retailers respond quickly and effectively to significant events such as: • Mergers and acquisitions • New President or CEO coming in • New competitor or market entry • New government taxes / VAT change • Increased performance requested from holding/parent company • New need to maximise commercial gross profit • New long term business plan requirement • New short term need or focus area WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT: I provide expert advice from decades of commercial experience that is not present in developing markets. I am able to accelerate performance while changing the culture of the commercial team to focus on their key responsibilities. I also inspire people to have a love for their commercial role and the importance it plays within a retail environment. I love the retail business, being in stores and surveying the overall environment before diving into the details. I love finding practical, pragmatic and sustainable solutions. I am able to quickly see the root cause of problems and address them appropriately. WHAT OTHERS SAY: “Howard is full of energy, an inspiring leader and his passion for retail and thought leadership in the industry is second to none.” - Peter Whitehead, FMCG Business & Project Management Professional READY TO TALK?
