    Leading at the Intersection of eCommerce, Digital, and Omnichannel Retail with Bernardine Wu

    Leading at the Intersection of eCommerce, Digital, and Omnichannel Retail with Bernardine Wu

    Bernardine Wu did not get to where she is overnight. Years of work with retailers, brands, distributors, investors, technology providers, and industry organizations cemented FitForCommerce’s unique position at the center of the digital commerce ecosystem. This led to Bernardine's successful exit to OSF Digital in early 2022. Today, their clients benefit from the collected experience across their team of consultants and the expertise gained from being at the intersection of technology, strategy, and process. Whether through client engagements, speaking at industry conferences, hosting workshops, or creating white-papers and reports, the insights and perspectives Bernardine and her colleagues share help retailers make smarter investment decisions everyday.
    The Omnichannel Retail Index is a great example - https://osf.digital/omnichannel-retai....

    A Platform To Recognize The Brave, The Innovators, and The Agitators

Her recent career includes Retail Transformation Officer for Aptos, NRF’s SVP, Communities and Executive Director, Shop.org, COO of Tory Burch, CIO of Giorgio Armani Corporation and Gucci Group.

    Leading Innovation Within Healthcare Private Equity with Dan Prestegaard

    Leading Innovation Within Healthcare Private Equity with Dan Prestegaard

    This episode of The Rebekah Panepinto Project features a conversation with Dan Prestegaard, Chief Information Officer at United Urology Group (UUG). Private equities may seem hasty in their decision-making but Dan shares how it looks from the other side of the fence.

    Dan gives an insider's look into their company, from managing security to spearheading innovation in AI and RPA, so that they can serve their whole spectrum of patients and physicians. He talks about the importance of a good team and their constant evolution in being intentional with innovation.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    The balance between private equity and healthcare
    Creating standards: Increase transparency and measure metrics
    Find talent, VC backing, and partners for innovation
    Serving both patients and physicians

    QUOTES

    Dan: "I think some of the bad rap that private equity has is because they have such broad access to multiple businesses that they can see what bad looks like. They understand pretty quickly when you have whether it's management that isn't performing or they have costs that are out of whack."

    Dan: "The nice thing about private equity, what it's trying to do is, it's trying to find places to grow the business so that you can scale and take economies of scale."

    Dan: "I would highly recommend if others do the similar type thing which is get a VC in place that really knows it and can help to bring along the technical staff and the administrative staff in getting policies and procedures, technology, other things in place so you can really grow the program."
