Barbara Wagner has built her career starting from stores to the GMM role, so we wanted asked her what excites her the most about Merchandising: "That it’s always changing. The role of the merchant is always chasing better business, better comps – always trying to do things better. It’s exciting to invest in something, believe in it enough to sell it to your internal partners that then take it to another level by presenting that product in a way that is inspiring to our field teams and customers. Your constantly inspired from current business (what the customer is voting for) and what the external influences are that help us to optimize our business – whether that is new categories, new product selections, new trends, color and/or price."
