As a highly
experienced and respected retail “super” agent and entrepreneur, Chad
Hetherington is one of the most connected individuals within retail today.

Since moving from
Australia to the U.S. in 2007, Chad has orchestrated some of the most
compelling retail programs, generating more than $500 million in retail sales.

As the former VP of
Sales at Quirky, Chad led sales and business development and was responsible
for growing the retail channel from zero stores to 50,000 stores within five
years, including Target, Home Depot, Amazon and Wal-Mart.

Chad is now Founder
and CEO of The
, a retail sales
agency that represents innovative and disruptive consumer product brands across
retail, licensing and creative partnerships.

Chad’s training and
education, or lack-thereof, was a bit unconventional but his drive has landed
him a very successful career and he credits much of his success to his brash,
all-or-nothing approach.
