Like many people we all know, Phil Denny found his way into retail by chance.
From starting in the stockrooms of a home décor store to managing teams across North America for Reiss, he finds his inspiration from the fantastic people working throughout the field.
Phil loves retail and can talk endlessly about commercial reports, but those that have been a part of his team know his true focus is always on people. He helps every individual realize their role in the bigger picture and shares his journey as an example to show how everyone can become a success.
Phil is also a classical musician who studied piano and voice and is an active member of the master choral of South Florida.
This is a fun conversation filled with great lessons of leadership and the joy of retail!
