Minneapolis, MN:  Quantum Retail Technology, the provider of merchandise optimization and inventory solutions for retail has announced that Quantum co-founder Chris Allan has been appointed as its CEO.

Chris has returned to Quantum in late 2014 to lead Quantum Retail’s development and delivery organizations and now will maintain that with the title of CEO.  Earlier, Chris was a Managing Director at Accenture where he led the Products Analytics organization in the UK and Ireland. Prior to Accenture, Chris was a co-founder of Quantum Retail and served in a variety of roles including Chief Customer Officer and Chief Strategy Officer. Chris also served in a product strategy role at Retek (now Oracle).

“Quantum’s core solutions offer retailers unique relief in an increasingly chaotic retail marketplace where having a clear view to customer demand and tuning your inventory to meet that demand is of critical importance,” says Chris Allan.  “As more and more retailers come to depend on analytic insights only Quantum can provide, it becomes important that we find a broader array of ways that retailers can use our solutions either in a standalone capacity, or in conjunction with their existing legacy systems and processes. Quantum can help every retailer become more profitable.”
