I am an accomplished retail leader in the apparel industry with more than 20 years of experience in visual merchandising, window display, execution sets and brand product launches. My experience includes being a Visual Merchandising Manager in Canada for Calvin Klein Retail; an executive position as Director of Visual Presentation where I led and executed visual standards for all CMT brands.

If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?

I am not sure…I am extremely happy with where our business is today and how my team continues to grow during and after the pandemic.

J2 Retail Management Office

With the relentless evolution of consumers’ desires leading the way, J2 Retail Management Inc. works with brands so they can transform themselves and reach new heights in both revenue and customer satisfaction- creating innovative solutions tailored just for them.

What is the inspiration behind your business?

Being in the industry for so long and working for different retailers I learned all the things I wanted to change and that needed to be changed. I was in a transition part of my life and felt it was the right time to start my own business.

What is your magic sauce?

J2 Retail Management Inc obsesses over the details so businesses don’t have to. We are unique from other companies in terms of what we do for our clients. Companies similar to ours do not typically offer the breadth of services that J2 offers.

What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?

Now that J2 has full-service offerings we are being sought out by brands looking to continue expanding as shoppers come back into stores. We expect the business to continue to grow and build our portfolio with over 100 brands.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?

Shortly prior to COVID, J2 clients were saying that they wanted a one-stop-shop with everything under one roof. Organically we grew into all of the other divisions that we now have. We never set out to be in the warehousing business or in the print business. Today we can offer a wide range of services to our clients across the continent.”
