The National Retail Federation (NRF) has announced that Qurate Retail president and CEO, Mike George, has been elected as the chairman of the NRF board of directors. George replaces BJ’s wholesale club chairman and CEO, Christopher Baldwin, who has served since January 2018. NRF is the world’s largest retail trade association, headquartered in Washington.

“By any measure, George has distinguished himself throughout his career as an innovator and highly successful global retail leader. As we begin the third decade of the 21st century, NRF is extremely fortunate to have George’s knowledge, background and expertise as this dynamic industry continually transforms, influencing the nation’s economy and impacting communities large and small,” NRF president and CEO Matthew Shay said in a press release.

“The level of creativity across retail has never been higher as our members respond to rising consumer expectations with new products and experiences that make people’s lives better. As an industry that supports one in four American jobs, retail is uniquely positioned to drive economic growth and NRF is a critical force in bringing the retail industry together. Retail continues to evolve at a rapid pace, making way for new technologies, products and platforms, and I am honoured to lead the NRF Board during this dynamic time,” George said.

In addition, three new members have been elected to the board; Vitamin Shoppe CEO., Sharon M. Leitte; Ralph Lauren president and CEO, Patrice Louvet; and Vera Bradley president, CEO, and director Robert Wallstrom. Louvet will be a member of the board’s executive committee.
