Greg Nieuwenhuys is a busy man. As CEO of Outdoor & Cycle Concepts, Greg leads what is now the UK's largest outdoor retailer after the acquisition of Snow & Rock, Cycle Surgery and Runners Need by Cotswold Outdoor back in 2015.
He's now responsible for 120 stores, 2000+ employees and approximately £200m in sales - and that's just his day job.
Passionate about the outdoors, Greg is a keen adventurer and sportsperson with a long list of international sporting achievements under his belt.
Greg will join members over dinner to talk about how he managed the integration of four separate retailers, complete with infrastructure (IT systems, HQ, warehousing) and people (management structure and culture) challenges in this merger.
Greg will also share his advice on surviving in a turbulent market with pressure from Brexit and Amazon to make all retailers more customer centric, omni-channel focused and cost efficient.
