The StrutFit Show shares the same vision as our company: to bring retail into the future! Every episode, our CEO, Ang Nayyar will be joined a guest who is leading or innovating in some part of the retail spectrum- from design, to manufacturing, to marketing, and even to sales. We'll discuss trends, learnings, and ideas, and really try figure out what the top performers in your field are doing. Along the way, we'll discover some lessons you can apply to your own career, and hopefully even have some fun.
