Supply-chain logistics and customer data truly are at the top of the “food chain” when it comes to building a reliable and innovative supermarket experience. When a company as big as Kroger sets out to transform the buying experience for over 10MM customers browsing their aisles and apps, driving exponential acceleration of its supporting tech is critical to enabling a first-in-class retail environment, and fostering the right leadership of technologists is the key to it all.
In this episode of The Restless Ones, we sit with Ryan Kean, Vice President, Technical Strategy and Operations at Kroger. Ryan’s focus on building the next generation of tech leadership is at the core of his mission to build the next generation of retail.
