    The successful candidate will also have a passion for modern design and bring an understanding of the Denver customer -- how they live and where they shop. This individual will value collaboration and foster this within the team. Working closely with the Delivery Center team, the Retail Manager will be strategic in their understanding of the market, customers and competition to achieve results.


    Position Requirements


    • Responsible for the financial success of the Denver market, with accountability for market sales, including revenue generated in the store, online and through our Customer Care (phone) channel for the market.
    • Lead, inspire, develop and challenge the team to continually focus on the needs of the customer, design confidence while growing in their responsibilities and contributions to the success of the Denver team.
    • Oversee showroom merchandising to meet the unique needs and represent the Room & Board brand to the Denver customer base.
    • Inspire rich personal connections to the Room & Board brand that continue to create a growing base of loyal customers.

    Preferred Qualifications


    Given the scope and expectations of this role we are seeking someone with a minimum of 10 years retail leadership experience with demonstrated attributes and successes aligned to the requirements of the position.
