Bob Almond Among Industry Leaders to Join Chain Store Age Panel
Chain Store Age announced the selection of the Advisory Board for SPECS/2016, an annual event produced by CSA and attended by retail and food-service executives involved in the planning, design, construction and maintenance of stores and restaurants nationwide.
Bob Almond, Chairman of NEST, will join a panel of experts known as the SPECS Advisory Board. The Board, which is comprised of approximately 45 industry leaders both from leading retail companies and key supplier organizations, will advise and direct the educational program for the 2016 conference, as well as serve as ambassadors for the entire event.
“I am honored to have been chosen for this Board. We value this event and the information we can glean from Chain Store Age,” remarked Almond. “What was expected of the retail facilities professional twenty years ago has evolved. My goal is to make sure that retailers have the relationships and resources to succeed. Part of my initiative is to work with the Board to bring technology to the forefront of the construction and facilities industry. I look forward to providing insight, not only from a tactical standpoint but, most importantly, from a business standpoint.”
