In the series kick off, Jose Gomes, Managing Director of North America for dunnhumby, travels to Sacramento to visit with executives from Raley’s Supermarkets, a prominent grocery chain with more than 120 locations in California and Nevada, to learn more about the company’s unique mission to help customers make more healthy eating decisions. Raley’s top executives Michael Teel, Owner and CEO, and Keith Knopf, President and COO, also discuss with Gomes how the grocer is leveraging customer data science to make the company’s mission come alive in a way that is both effective and sustainable.

“So much of the last year has focused on the gloom and doom of some of the changes occurring in the retail market,” said Gomes. “There is a growing groundswell of retailers that are not only reimagining what it means to be a retailer, but also how they can embrace data and technology to better meet the needs of today’s consumers. I am excited to have the opportunity to meet with a diverse range of retailers and showcase how they are addressing key challenges to propel their businesses further.”
