American Apparel CTO To Deliver Closing Keynote at Tech Conference West

Stacey Shulman, Chief Technology Officer for American Apparel, will deliver the closing keynote address, "Building an IT Innovation Team," at the upcoming Apparel Tech Conference West, to be held Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at LA Trade Tech College. The conference is produced by Apparel Magazine, and complimentary registration is available to qualified apparel retailers, brands and manufacturers at apparelmag.com.

The solutions architected by Shulman and her teams are currently in use in myriad retail locations in more than 75 countries.

In this highly informative and in-depth session, Shulman will share her philosophy on the cultural shift needed in order to move past a traditional IT "break/fix" mentality and into an innovation-focused and consultative mentality with a goal of helping propel your business forward. Against this backdrop she will share some of the exciting IT projects in motion at American Apparel, such as RFID (including a new project to achieve real-time item movement tracking on the sales floor), progress with an augmented reality mobile app, innovations in the brand-new American Apparel distribution center and more.
