We are excited to welcome Chris Walters to the BOLD team as our newest Retail Director!
Chris has been in eCommerce, merchandising, and retail for six years and previously worked at DaySpring and Sam’s Club. This Arkansas-native and avid skier is passionate about helping brands grow and thrive in the ultra-competitive world of retail marketing.
Here's a bit more about Chris in his own words...
What’s your hometown?
Rogers, AR. I went out of state for school but moved back after graduation because this area had, and continues to have, great potential.
Why did you decide to join BOLD Strategies?
I decided to join BOLD because of the business model (total solution provider), the fact that many team members have a retail/CPG background, and that it’s a local company. I think having people with various backgrounds and a passion for eCommerce is a strong plus, and I wanted to be part of that.
What's the first thing you ever bought on Amazon.com? What does that say about you?
The first item I ever bought was most likely a music CD, and I probably placed the order sitting in my dorm room on a Gateway desktop. Not sure what this says about me, other than I’ve long enjoyed the convenience of shopping online.
What's your favorite book(s)?
The Dark Tower series by Stephen King
What's your favorite place?
"I'm happiest when I'm..."
Outdoors…it can be the mountains, river, desert, or beach. It doesn’t matter. I just really like unplugging and getting outside.
"People would be surprised to know that..."
My most favorite thing to do is ski. If being a ski bum from Arkansas would pay the bills, that’s what I’d do.
