Engage3 Welcomes New Leadership With Bob Beck and Gary Lowen
DAVIS, CA - Say hello to two new faces in the leadership of Engage3: Bob Beck, the new Senior Director of Strategic Enablement, and Gary Lowen, the Director of Sales. The data-driven retail branding company is set to benefit from the newcomers because of their vast expertise in the industry.
“With their focus on supporting both brick & mortar and online retailers with thoughtful pricing strategies, Engage3 has significant growth potential with an opportunity to contribute across the industry globally. I am excited to provide strategic insights our partners can immediately leverage in their businesses,” said Beck in a recent press release.
Beck’s resume boasts of 35+ years of experience with Walmart in Pricing, Global Sourcing, and Walmart International; Procter & Gamble as the first Director of Category Management with the Target Customer Development Team in Minneapolis; Diageo; and Schwan’s Consumer Brands. His career in Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) gave him experience with numerous retailers, including HEB, Albertson’s/Safeway, Kroger, WINCO, and Target Stores.
Lowen’s career is steeped in technology and field initiatives, with 16 years devoted to CPG beverage alcohol giant Diageo. He then switched gears to work with an independent software vendor, JDA Software Group, as the Vice President of North America. He has also taken the titles of Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Retail Optimization, Inc. and Senior Vice President of the Americas at Intactix International, leading through explosive growth periods and ultimately to acquisitions by Revionics and JDA respectively. At an ERP/supply chain consulting group named Retail Process Engineering, Lowen led business development efforts. To top off all this experience, Lowen’s expertise spans the realm of logistics and distribution space, as his roles as both the Vice President of Sales at Manhattan Associates and Sales Leader NCR’s supply chain demonstrate.
“Engage3 brings a compelling set of solutions for today and tomorrow’s retail ecosystem, a team that consistently puts the customer first, and a customer and prospect base that’s passionate about the subject matter,” said Lowen. “I am excited to join and accelerate the company’s already rapid growth.”
No doubt Beck and Lowen will help Engage3’s mission of creating branding that is based on pricing performance through scientific and analytic findings because of their extensive experience working within the sales, pricing, merchandising, analytic, and supply chain industries.
“Bob Beck brings tremendous domain experience to the table and has already begun partnering with our strategic accounts to add immediate value to their pricing programs,” said Edris Bemanian, COO. “Gary Lowen’s extensive experience engaging C-Level executives in pricing, merchandising, predictive analytics, and supply chain will be instrumental. It’s our objective to hire the industry’s best and brightest, so we are very excited to add such great partners to our team.”
