We’re in an age where retail is constantly evolving – new retail formats, new business models and a new segment of customers.

Andy Ruben is the founder of Yerdle Recommerce – a retail company that’s making it easy for brands to buy back and resell their used items. Before he founded Yerdle seven years ago, Andy was the Vice President of Walmart’s Global Ecommerce strategy and was also their first and founding Chief Sustainability officer. He’s a recipient of the Sam M. Walton Entrepreneur Award, Walmart’s highest annual honor and was recognized as 40 Under 40 business leader.

Listen to the The Vue Podcast to hear Ruben talk about why sustainability and re-commerce are the core values at Yerdle and how the company has led by example when it comes to these retail models. He also talks about Yerdle’s partnership with brands like Patagonia, Eileen Fisher, REI, Taylor Stitch and Arc’teryx to launch their used product online storefronts and their commitment to building a circular economy.
