A Note From Our Founder A global consulting company with roots in an Edina basement, Concord turned 20 this year. Stu Nutting shares his perspective on the organization’s growth ahead of his upcoming retirement. In our twentieth year of helping customers with their most difficult technology and business challenges, I’ve decided to retire from the day-to-day operation at Concord. My last day will be August 31, 2023. In 2003, a few fantastic humans and I started Concord in my basement. Geez, time flies when you’re having fun. But now, it’s time to let other fantastic humans step up and take Concord to the next level. I will continue to serve on the board and be part of the Concord team, looking for any way I can to help this platform find more success. I’ve taken time to thank our employees who have busted their butts for us over the years, and now I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their support, as well. Thank you for trusting us to help you find good people and bringing us in to execute critical work for your organization. I truly appreciate every dollar you spend with Concord, and I trust you receive the value you expected. I’m very proud of what we built over the years. When I look at our recent growth, the strategic acquisitions we made, the new clients we serve, and the legacy clients we continue to support, I can’t help but be super excited for the future of Concord, its employees, and its clients.

Four methods to increase your retail profits immediately with analytics and AI

With nearly a quarter of millennials shifting their shopping habits online, and the pandemic accelerating acceptance of digital marketplaces, there’s massive potential for retail marketers to capitalize on. Despite headlines and trends painting a gloomy picture, you have the power to control your own retail narrative and finish the year strong.

For years, our internal brand at Concord has been “We Get Sh*t Done.” And that’s not gonna change. We’re not afraid of the messy stuff, we’re the first to grab a shovel when it’s time to get to work, and we hire super smart people that help our customers with a very no-nonsense consultative approach. If you aren’t working with Concord, you are making a mistake. After being in the consulting business for twenty years, I’ll put our people up against anyone in the industry when it comes to caring about the finished product, telling you the truth when you need to hear it, and bringing the best solutions and ideas to accomplish your goals. And, as you all know, nothing ever goes perfectly, but our people don’t sit around and cry about it. They look for ways to make it better, ‘cause that’s who they are.

I’ll close with one of my favorite go-to pieces of advice that I read on a framed poster in a badass gym: “Work hard, be kind, and amazing things will happen.”

Good luck with all that you do, and when you need sh*t done, call Concord.

Your friend, - Stu Nutting, Co-Founder of Concord
