Today I am excited to announce my presentation for the 2019 edition of the Velocity Conference. This year’s event will be held April 29 – May 1, 2019, at the Le Méridien Charlotte in Charlotte, NC.

Over the next few weeks, we will be announcing the entire lineup of icons, geniuses, and mavericks who will educate, challenge and grow private brands for years to come.

The Extraordinary Rise of Private Brand at Amazon

In this presentation My Private Brand President, Christopher Durham will take a deep dive into the meteoric rise of private brand at online giant Amazon.  Durham will paint a picture of the private brand successes and failures which fuel their continued, aggressive growth. With more than 100 private brands across virtually every category, the Whole Foods portfolio of private brands, and complete control of their ecosystem…the future of Amazon will be defined by private brand.
