retail news in context, analysis with attitude

A fellow named Tom Arthur died last weekend at age 62.

Most people in the food retail industry probably won’t know the name. But Tom Arthur was a longtime senior executive and leader at Stew Leonard’s, a nephew of Stew and Marianne Leonard who joined the company in 1983.

His passing is worth noting because it is a reminder that great businesses are built not just by the guy with his name on the door, but by many people who work hard, often tirelessly, to make the founder’s vision a reality.

Worth remembering, I think.
