The multi-billion dollar retail marketplace is the largest industry segment in the digital signage industry and represents a major strategic target for the company. RMG anticipates that the retail segment will become a significant source of RMG’s long-term revenue growth.
Townsend, most recently a Vice President, Retail at Scala, will leverage her deep industry expertise and wealth of experience to lead RMG in the pursuit of growing sales in the retail marketplace. She has continually demonstrated success with landing benchmark accounts for the companies with whom she has worked and has become a trusted supplier to top-tier customers.
Townsend will be responsible for providing leadership in market positioning, go-to-market strategies and thought leadership for this important business initiative with the ultimate goal of achieving annual revenue goals for the retail segment. Working closely with existing RMG retail experts, Townsend will seek to design and build a team that will source, lead and close large retail opportunities.
“We recognize the size and strategic importance of the retail segment to RMG and are excited to begin expanding aggressively in this area, not only with a competitive solution, but with a strong sales and marketing strategy,” said Robert Michelson, Chief Executive Officer and President of RMG. “The retail industry segment is estimated to be the largest market for digital signage across the globe. We’re positioning our company for both short- and long-term growth with the addition of Dina to the team.”
A veteran in technology, and, in particular, content management systems, Townsend has a successful track record of selling technology solutions to the world’s leading brands and retailers.
“There is a pulse to retail unlike any other segment I’ve seen, and I’m excited to join RMG, which is doing unique things for an ever-growing industry,” Townsend said. “Retailers operate in a competitive environment and need innovative technology and solutions to positively influence shopper behavior. As technologists, our job is to help our clients confidently seize retail opportunities by offering pioneering ideas safeguarded by RMG’s expertise and competencies. We get to be the strong shoulders on which they stand.”
