dunnhumbyUSA CEO Cites Loyalty in Keynote Address
In his keynote address, dunnhumbyUSA CEO Stuart Aitken outlined how his company has achieved the success which allowed his firm to recently begin construction of a new four-story corporate headquarters in downtown Cincinnati.
Aitken stressed identifying and rewarding loyal customers as a cornerstone of dunnhumbyUSA’s corporate strategy as well as clients like The Kroger Company, Macy’s, Coca-Cola, General Mills, and Proctor & Gamble.
Aitken has adopted the same ‘success through loyalty’ approach in fostering relationships with dunnhumbyUSA employees, creating a work environment which has landed his company on the Cincinnati Business Courier’s “Best Places To Work” list four times.
400+ In Attendance
In addition to giving the 400+ attendees a chance to reflect on their accomplishments, the event also served as a forum to connect with other decision makers on the issues which face the region.
NBC affiliate WLWT Channel 5 news anchor Courtis Fuller repeated his 2011 role as event emcee.
For Rent It Today, being a recipient of the prestigious award for the second straight year serves as verification the company is headed in a positive direction. The rental industry marketing company has added significant staff in the past year to support its growing client base as well as its new Call Center.
“The future is indeed bright here at Rent It Today,” said founder and CEO Jason Glass. “I felt Stuart Aiken’s keynote address resonated with our own growing focus in identifying and rewarding loyal customers. It simply reinforces the desire to continue on that path.”
Rent It Today has seen continuous growth since Glass and Matthew Stephenson founded the company in 2007. More and more consumers as well as businesses realize the value of rental, making it a trend which shows no signs of slowing. The site has had over one million unique visitors each of the last two years.
