Join the first virtual event of the Wharton Graduate Retail Club's 15th Annual Retail Conference, Retail's Resilience. Oliver Chen, Managing Director of Retail and Lucury at Cowen and Company, WG06' will provide opening remarks for the conference as well as his perspective on the state of the retail industry.

Mr. Chen's deep understanding of the consumer and his ability to forecast the latest trends and technological changes that will impact the retail space has set him apart from peers. Oliver's broad coverage and circumspect view makes him the thought partner of retail and brand leaders. His coverage of the retail sector has led to numerous industry awards and press coverage from CNBC, Bloomberg, The New York Times, Financial Times, Barron's, The Wall Street Journal and others. Most recently, Mr. Chen was named to the National Retail Federation (NRF) Foundation's "2019 List of People Shaping Retail's Future."

At Wharton, Mr. Chen was a recipient of the Jay H. Baker Retail Award for impact in retailing and was a co-founding president of the Wharton Retail Club. He is a member of the PhD Retail Research Review Committee for the Wharton School's Jay H. Baker Retailing Center. Mr. Chen was recognized in the Wharton School's "40 Under 40" brightest stars alumni list in 2017.

Following Oliver Chen's address, he will moderate a Fireside Chat with Amanda Parkes, Chief Innovation Officer of PANGAIA, from 12:30-1:30pm via Zoom.
