2) In July of 2021, you were presented with the opportunity to join the Albertsons Companies in creating what is now known as Albertsons Media Collective. What was appealing about this opportunity?
3) When you build a retail media platform from the ground up, you have to start with talent. How did you go about assembling the team that would build a best-in-class platform?
4) What were the core elements of the platform that you determined needed to be included in the offering that would be meaningful to brands?
5) We've heard some of your colleagues describe Albertsons Media Collective as having "late mover advantage." Would you describe how this comes to life and why brands should consider this advantageous?
6) What types of partnerships were you looking to create to make Albertsons Media Collective attractive for brands to invest in you, specifically with respect to offsite programmatic and advertising management?
7) Your colleague Claire Wyatt was a recent guest on the podcast and she described the importance of measuring not just ROAS but incrementality. Would you please explain why this is important for you to attract brand investments?
