Retail Record Episode 10
Purpose over Profit: Driving the Future of Retail
“With a purpose-based brand and community, the purpose side actually lends itself to more data. To build that community, you want to know not just what people are buying and their demographic data, but we’re adding on a new level of data around how important purpose is in your purchasing decision.”
- Noah Treshnell
PreciseTarget COO, Liddy Manson, hosted a fireside chat with Noah Treshnell and Wes Mccaw, Co-Founders of D.O.B., to discuss how retail is moving towards a purpose-based industry. This is the tenth episode of many to come in our virtual thought leadership series, The Retail Record. Our goal is to cultivate meaningful discussions around trending topics in retail, ecommerce, and the industry’s future with other leaders in the space.
Date of Birth, Inc. is a digital fashion platform and community supporting sustainable, inclusive and local brands. The name, Date of Birth (D.O.B) takes inspiration from the birth of a new retail model, one where you can shop with purpose and begin the journey to learning how to create a better future. Noah Treshnell and Wes McCaw founded this marketplace fashion platform to transform the legacy world of fashion, retail and wholesale into a new model: purpose over profit. The platform launched in 2020 with a host of initial brand partners, each meeting the D.O.B principles of sustainability, inclusion and/or support of local communities. Noah comes from 20+ years of experience in fashion and retail, including Levi’s, Vineyard Vines, Restoration Hardware, and Yankee Candle. Wes also has 20+ years of experience within retail at Walmart, Charlotte Rousse, Levi’s, BCBG, Gap, and Restoration Hardware. Their combined experience has led them to start D.O.B. in an effort to implement new processes to meet and exceed the rising expectations of today’s consumer.
