As 2013 comes to a close, TWICE presents this special year-end retrospective.
Highlighting the issue is our inaugural Newsmaker of the Year series, which profiles the industry’s principal movers and shakers of the past 12 months. Filling the top debut spot is Hubert Joly, who resuscitated Best Buy and, in the process, brought renewed zest to the CE business and brick-and-mortar retail.
Honorable mentions go to four other chief executives – Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Dish’s Charlie Ergen, Sony’s Kazuo Hirai and Electrolux’s Jack Truong – who either revitalized their companies or, in Bezos’ case, rewrote the rules all others play by.
Please see the stories below for TWICE's complete coverage.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
