WAUKESHA, Wis. — Corey Paske has joined HRG as business development manager. His mission will be to bring HRG’s resources, such as category management, space planning, visual merchandising, retail strategy, creative services, and asset management, to the pet, hardware, and beauty segments of the retail industry.
HRG has already applied its expertise with manufacturers in the pet, hardware, and beauty space, and the company said it is investing time and resources to learn how it can bring even more value to other suppliers as well as distributors and retailers.
“We’re looking forward to diving further into these areas of retail, getting involved in the associations and shows, and learning how our talented team can help improve results for organizations,” HRG director of business development Angela Pinkstaff said. “Corey has over 20 years of experience in retail at the store management level which is incredibly valuable as he works with manufacturers, distributors, and retailers. His knowledge of store operations, shopper behavior, promotional techniques, and more is going to make him a great resource for clients and our internal teams as well. He is looking forward to putting that expertise to work for our clients.”
Paske sees opportunities ahead for HRG in these categories.
“With over 40 years in the retail industry, HRG is perfectly positioned to offer pet, hardware, and beauty manufacturers assistance in multiple areas that can either alleviate resource constraints or provide support in their retail strategies anywhere from concept to commercialization,” he said. “Many of those services can also apply to retailers, and our experience in fixture management definitely translates to them, too. I’m excited to learn more so we can help fuel growth.”
