Giles Smith, luxury retail leader from Burberry to Selfridges appointed as Judge

We are delighted to announce that Giles Smith, whose foundational leadership at Burberry marked the beginning of a distinguished career in luxury retail technology, has joined the People in Retail Awards as a judge.

Giles, a visionary in digital strategy and people management, has worked with top-tier brands such as John Lewis, Arcadia, Walmart, and Unilever, recently concluding a significant role at Selfridges.

Giles is celebrated for his people-first approach, fostering diverse, empowered teams that excel under his guidance. This philosophy has been a cornerstone throughout his career, enabling him to drive innovation and maintain a keen focus on customer experience and digital transformation.

As a keynote speaker and a board member of the MACH Alliance, Giles has consistently shared his insights on technological advancements and team dynamics. His commitment to developing environments where professionals can thrive aligns seamlessly with the ethos of the People in Retail Awards.

Reflecting on his new role, Giles stated:

“Throughout my career, I’ve always prioritised people first. As I’ve grown and assumed more responsibility, the privilege to influence and uplift larger teams has only deepened. Joining the judging panel for the People in Retail Awards deeply resonates with my lifelong commitment to build and be a part of an environment where everyone can thrive according to their own definitions of success. Whether it’s facilitating growth, providing mentorship, or simply creating a space where people can excel, this role is a continuation of my dedication to celebrating and nurturing the potential in others.”

We look forward to benefiting from the unique perspective and experience that Giles brings to our panel. His profound understanding of the interplay between technology and human capital will undoubtedly enrich our mission to honor exceptional talent in the retail industry.
