The 2016 Management Events Retail Influencer of the Year winner is Johan Ryding, CEO, Sportamore for his vision and leadership, “In many ways, Sportamore represents the future of retail. We are trying to understand and deliver on tomorrows expectations – today. When we succeed, we not only strengthen the relationship with our customers and grow our business, we also have an impact on consumer’s general anticipations on e-commerce and redefine the concept of service.

“Sportamore from the start has been all about service. The people that work here have a never ending urge to compete, improve, and evolve and to deliver world-class service to consumers. This is a mindset that we believe is necessary if you should remain number one in a competitive world.”
