Webinar with New Juniper CEO Addresses E-Commerce Trends

(June 29, 2021) – Veteran digital innovator and Juniper CEO, Bill Furlong, will explore expanding business and engaging customers through e-commerce in a free webinar, Leadership Perspective: A One-on-One with Bill Furlong, CEO of Juniper by IMC, on Thursday, July 8.

"Omnichannel is undoubtedly the future for the gift, apparel and home furnishings industries,” said Furlong. “While many software and e-commerce platforms are focused solely on digital interactions, our mission is to support commerce wherever our customers choose to transact, whether that be online, on the road or at a physical market.”

As part of a casual and lively discussion with moderator Julie McCallum, editor-in-chief of Gift Shop Plus and editorial director of Stationery Trends, Furlong also will discuss what brought him to the Juniper team and what makes Juniper unique.

Furlong joined Juniper on June 1, bringing 25 years of digital innovation and leadership experience to the position. He worked for 11 years with Expedia Group, a highly fragmented vacation-rental industry which mirrors some of the complexities of the B2B gift and home industry.
