Mr. Bodson has played a pivotal role in guiding the U.K. retailer’s digital transformation from a four-decade old catalogue business with around 800 physical stores into a multichannel online powerhouse with more than a billion visits online annually.
The online and mobile initiatives led by Mr. Bodson have helped Argos to become the first U.K. retailer to hit £1 billion in revenue via mobile. More than 50% of its business is now digital, including 30% from mobile channels, making Argos the third largest online retailer in the U.K., after Amazon and eBay.
At a time when retail stores are closing at an epic pace, Bodson and his team have found digital pathways to success by providing their customers with unrivalled choice, speed, and convenience.
