A key figure at RetailTech 50 firm Dropit Shopping has won a C-Suite award.

President and COO Stuart Ford was named Retail Tech COO of the Year (UK) by CEO Monthly magazine for the second year in a row.

Dropit’s AI plugin supplies a ‘brain’ to unify a retailer’s operations across channels, evading the pitfalls of siloed decision-making by pooling data from internal fulfilment systems and external sources.

Live in the UK, Europe, US and Canada, it operates in over 1,000 stores and with hundreds of brands.

It is the second running of the C-Suite Awards, which aim to recognise top-performing C-level executives from a multitude of industries. 

“It’s recognition of the great work done by the team rather than an individual award – but nice to get all the same,” Ford, who joined the business in 2020, wrote on LinkedIn.

Dropit, 13th on our RetailTech 50 ranking this year, was founded in 2016 and is led by founding CEO Karin Cabili.
