Our Approach


Our Approach

Empire's sole focus is delivering shareholder/owner value to our client companies through:


We spend intimate time with our clients understanding corporate strategy, goals, objectives, and challenges. These inherent challenges facings retailers are constantly evolving based on the "new normal" of retail. With aggressive growth in ecommerce, price optimization, utilization of Big-Data, and supply chain efficiencies, SOLVING problems is our differentiator.

We review with our clients' leadership team the business strategies, financial expectations, and expected results/timing. We align ourselves as an extension of the client company...rather than an expense.

Once we understand the underlying strategy and challenges facing our clients, we develop a cohesive and measured placement strategy to match talent to the challenge and competency necessary to deliver.
