With the strategy defined, SBD heavily supports key organic growth initiatives (via research, planning and implementation) and oversees all aspects of inorganic growth (i.e., partnership development, corporate investment, mergers and acquisitions). As part of SBD, team members will deepen their knowledge of retail generally and home improvement specifically, investigate emerging technologies influencing retail, and explore various retail functional strategies (i.e., customer in-store and online experience, merchandising, pricing, delivery, marketing, etc.).
The Analyst role is a key member of the SBD team. Working with SBD leadership, the Analyst is heavily involved with research, financial modeling and valuation, materials creation, and project management that are critical to defining and executing THD s strategy.
