 Randa Appoints Newly Created Position VP E-Commerce

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE New York, NY (March 13, 2014) – Randa Accessories, the world’s largest men’s accessories company, is pleased to announce the addition of Vice President E-Commerce David Simon, a newly created position. Dave joins Randa from Toys R Us and will report to Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer David Katz.

“Dave will be leading our wholesale and retail omni-channel initiatives,” said Katz, “and will work closely with all divisions, brand and retail partners on increasing e-commerce revenues and net contribution.”

The new position reflects Randa’s continued commitment to ecommerce as part of their growth strategy.  Simon has a broad range of experience starting with developing a family operated ready-to-wear business and then moving on to Toys R Us where he moved up through the ranks of merchandise planning, buying and ecommerce to eventually become executive director of e-commerce.  Dave is eager to apply his skills and experience to Randa Accessories, “an organization that is committed to what’s next in driving retail evolution.”

Simon’s entry into the e-commerce world 13 years ago was by chance, but in that, says Simon, “I found something I truly love. Being a key original member of a team that built an industry-leading, e-commerce business is something I am really proud of and determined to recreate and take to the next level with the Randa team.”  Dave sees Randa as a leader in developing and executing merchandise strategies with ecommerce and “brick and click” partners, and is thrilled with the opportunity to extend that to e-commerce.

Says Simon, “Ultimately my goal is: to make Randa, and its portfolio brands, leaders in online product sales.”

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
