Baugur, Phones 4U, Financo and Land Securities chiefs to speak
Activity is gathering pace in the run-up to the Retail Week Conference 2007 and more top names have been added to the list of speakers in the past few weeks.

Baugur head of group retail operations Gunnar Sigurdsson and William Susman, president and chief operating officer at Financo in the US, have both confirmed their participation. They will be joining Hobbs managing director Nick Samuel on a panel discussing private-equity techniques for turning around struggling retailers. This will be an audience-led discussion, so come prepared with your questions to ensure you get the most out of it.

Phones 4U UK retail managing director David Downie has also signed to the event and will join a discussion on day two focusing on how to attract and hold on to the best employees to build your platform for growth.

Land Securities regional director Gerald Jennings will be lending his perspective to the lively debate on whether landlords and retailers can work together and Puma deputy head of global retail Kay Niehaus will be joining the Retail Without Borders session on the development of global retail.
