Are you an industry radical? The Robin Report wants to hear from you!

The Robin Report, a communications platform providing information and insights on the fast-evolving retail scene, is seeking nominations for its upcoming “Radicals Awards”, which will recognize the innovators and change agents currently transforming traditional stores and brands.

Ten “Radicals” from retail and consumer-facing industries will be selected as candidates for the 2019 Radical of the Year Award. The awards will culminate in March 2019 with an event celebrating all 10 finalists and revealing the 2019 winner.

Robin Lewis, founder and CEO of The Robin Report, explains the need for this award. “While there is no shortage of accolades for investor-funded tech startups,” says Lewis, “unrecognized are the innovators within traditional old-world heritage companies, established before the year 2000, who are now implementing radical changes to successfully compete in the new world. The Radicals Awards will honor these individuals.”

“We are living in a transformational moment of opportunity,” adds Lewis. “Those stores, malls, and brands surviving the ultimate shake-out will transform their models, driven by dynamics of retail tech that has flipped retail on its head.”

You can nominate yourself or a colleague. The online application for nominees is available at For more info: contact Christine Russo at
