Versatile Leader with Passion for Transformation with Data

Toffy is a 20-year veteran of building, evolving and transforming retail/e-commerce businesses. He is passionate about helping companies achieve their strategic goals through efficient operational execution, particularly by leveraging data. Possessing a wide range of skills and knowledge complimented by a thirst for learning, he’s worn many hats (oftentimes, simultaneously) with experiences ranging from modernizing a 50-year old, $10B retailer’s data and analytics capabilities to building merch planning analytics in a 5-year old e-commerce company from the ground up. His work infusing data science into a $2B apparel company’s buy process led to tens of millions of incremental dollars. Toffy earned his MBA from the Harvard Business School and graduated summa cum laude from Princeton University.
