Richard Beattie TCC’s acting CEO, said of the new appointment: “In the new world of retail, where the digital and real worlds are interchangeable, it’s vital that we help our customers navigate this new terrain effectively. The environment has changed, but loyalty has not and Perry’s appointment comes at a time when TCC is looking to strengthen its position, preparing for future growth as a fully independent and privately owned company. As we enter our 25th year, we’re better placed than ever to help retailers foster the pairing of strategy and creativity so vital in inspiring passion and excitement in their customers. ”
