    I have been working at Kit and Ace full-time

    Pros

    - Product!
    - New owners are cultivating a fun culture with an emphasis on empowering their people.
    - Love the start up life; you get to work cross functional with all departments, learn a ton about retail and assist in building a brand.

    Cons

    - Being associated with the past, and needing to educate on the new brand direction.
    - The business is focused on earning the right to grow. Which means moderate growth

    Advice to Management

    Continue telling the new Kit and Aces story and direction. In my opinion it is all about generating awareness. Otherwise great product and bike vision; love my classic ride pant :-)

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Kit and Ace.

    Interview

    More like a friendly coffee chat. They wanted to know what I was interested in. What type of leadership experience I had? It was clear my interviewer wanted to know if we could work closely along side each other as Partners in Crime.

    Retail's Hot Pivot: Kit and Ace

    Thrilled to announce I'm consulting with Kit and Ace! This apparel retailer is now under new ownership, led by industry veteran George Tsogas. George and his team are driving our retail industry's hottest pivot.

  • It was an honour to have The Navigator, our go-to for travel and commuting featured in Air Canada's enRoute Magazine as a winner of their Ultimate Travel Gear collection.

    The Ultimate Travel Gear of 2018

    When this San Francisco-based shoe company took flight in 2016 with an environmentally friendly merino-wool runner, techies in Silicon Valley and millennials everywhere went berserk. This year, Allbirds launched a new textile that's engineered from eucalyptus-tree pulp and knit into a mesh fabric for a soft, four-way stretch.
