Locally is happy to announce our newest teammate, Chris Howe. Chris joins us as an Account Executive focused on supporting brands and retailers of the outdoor industry.
Chris comes to Locally with over thirty years of experience in the outdoor industry. Prior to Locally, Chris had worked for 25 years at Denali in Southern New England and served 10 years on the board of the Grassroots Outdoor Alliance, with three of those years as its chairman.
Chris says, “I am thrilled to be part of the Locally team. Their mission to connect online customers with locally available products speaks to both my experiences and beliefs. There is now a significant opportunity for brands to maximize the opportunity of tens of thousands of brick and mortar retailers while simultaneously supporting their own brand stores and increasing the brand’s profile both online and in store”.
“As our business is expanding rapidly around the globe, it’s crucial we maintain stability with our over 200 brand clients and thousands of retailers in the Outdoor industry. Chris is the perfect addition to our team working toward achieving our goals of growing participation on both fronts: brand clients and retailer activation.”, says Teddy Schiavoni, VP Business Development at Locally. “His experience is uniquely valuable to Locally and we look forward to bringing Chris into the conversation among our wholesale channel partners in Outdoor.”
Since 2014, Locally has established itself as the leader in local inventory discovery solutions for brands. Our tools empower retailers to display stock in unlimited places simultaneously via a single Point of Sale connection to Locally. Installing Locally on a website creates a seamless omnichannel shopping experience complimenting D2C by enabling shoppers with everything from local ROBIS to BOPIS and Same Day Delivery.
Locally currently has over ten thousand retailers connected with daily stock feeds, from over thirty countries, in fourteen languages and a dozen currencies. With over 1 million unique daily visitors and 1 billion monthly online-to-offline referrals, Locally facilitates billions of dollars of curbside, in-store, and same-day-delivery purchases. Our broadest activation is the Outdoor industry with overlap into Footwear, Snow sports and Bicycling. Other emerging industries include Diving, Fishing, Food and Beverage, and Consumer Electronics. Our presence in the Run industry is deeply rooted across North America and growing rapidly across Europe and into APAC.
