Jamie Downs, Partner and National Head of Management Consulting at Grant Thornton, said: “Having Liz on our team directly meets the needs of the retail industry. She has a strong and successful history in merchandise and category management and customer analytics to drive revenue growth, optimise business profitability, and increase market-share across department store, pharmacy, convenience store and e-commerce channels.”

“Her experience is impeccable, we know Liz delivers results, and we are lucky to have her in a leadership position within the Retail practice.”

In her new role, Webster will focus on helping Grant Thornton’s retail clients transform their supply chain operations, grow their customer value through customer experience, build capabilities and teams, and drive growth plans.

Webster: “Following 18 months of disruption in retail, I want to help clients make sense of what is happening in the marketplace right now, and also to predict future trends. I have extensive retail knowledge and a vast network of retail contacts, and I’ll utilise both to bring another layer of expertise and skill set to the group.”
