2019 Speakers

Here are a few more details about the incredible speakers we had at the 2019 Return Revolution Conference!

Graham Best

Co-Founder and CEO of ReBOUND

Graham has spent the best part of his 30 year career in roles which are connected to supply chain software in some way or another. But fast-track to 2013 and that’s when things get really interesting…

 

Five years ago, Graham and his business partner set-off on a journey to address an industry-wide problem that struck them as grossly underserved – eCommerce Returns.

 

With a small but mighty team and grand ambitions to become THE most adopted returns platform for online retail returns, ReBOUND soon attracted leading brands and innovative carriers who identified with ReBOUND’s philosophy of offering shoppers a wider choice of return method and ultimately a better buying experience. ReBOUND calls it; the returns revolution.

 

With the likes of ASOS and Wiggle on board in their first year and now with 500 brands on the platform, ReBOUND continues to positively disrupt the online retail industry and in recognition of these achievements as CEO and entrepreneur, Graham was awarded the EY Midlands Disruptor of the Year title in 2018.
