Why Carol Meyrowitz, CEO Of TJX, Is Retailer Of The Year
Retiring CEO Carol Meyrowitz is, without doubt, my pick for Retailer of the Year. Her leadership in her company, and the retail industry, is a real achievement. She is a mentor to her associates and a true visionary. With the exception of Ms. Meyrowitz, the retail industry is largely void of dynamic leadership. In the many times I asked a retail CEO “what is your vision for your company;” I have received few good answers. Leadership requires a bold vision of where a company should be in 10 and 20 years. Ms. Meyrowitz has a vision. Even now as she prepares to exit, she sees a near term goal of $40 Billion in worldwide sales for the company, and has a plan for how to get there.
