Minter Dialogue with John Andrews

John Andrews is a career shopper marketer, entrepreneur and intrapreneur having worked for the likes of Newell Rubbermaid, Hanes and, on the retail side, Walmart where he built Walmart Elevenmoms. He has also founded and exited several startups. He is coauthor along with Ted Rubin of “Retail Relevancy: How Brands and Retailers will Connect in a Post-Physical World. In this interview, we discuss John’s career, the future of retail, who holds the power between brands and retailers, whether brands should own their channel (à la Nike and Apple), and solving some of the biggest retail challenges looming.
