Back in 1995 Bill became frustrated with the lack of actual retail/manufacturing experience many consultants failed to supply to their clients. He found that they had a difficult time suggesting solutions that would work in their client’s “real world” environment. That became the launching point for Bill to form Stuart & Associates Inc. His goal was to start a consultant company that was different, effective and spoke the language of retailers and manufacturer’s.
Bill had over 20 years of retail experience prior to starting Stuart & Associates. He has a proven track record of turning problems into profits by providing substantial gains in revenue, margin and bottom-line profits.
He held every major field operations position from District Manager, Regional Merchandiser to Group Vice-President of store operations during his retail career. He understands firsthand what it takes to run stores, motivate people and react quickly in a practical way to everyday situations.
His ability to work with retailers and manufacturers in the development of products, selling strategies, return reduction programs, and best in class training has gained him the respect of the top retailers and manufacturers in the world.
