"Questions & Answers" - Part 12 of a 12-Part Series

Today, in our final chapter: Tom Furphy & Kevin Coupe answer audience questions about ... what Amazon's acquisition of Zappos tells us about its culture ... the likelihood of a private brand play by the e-tailer ... and what traditional retailers need to do to get in the game.

This morning, MNB concludes a series of videos culled from a presentation that I did at the recent Food Marketing Institute (FMI) 2012 Show in Dallas. The session, entitled "From Amazon to Zipcar: Innovations from the E-Revolution," featured an extended conversation with Tom Furphy, CEO of Consumer Equity Partners and the guy who helped Amazon.com get into the grocery business.

This series has been made possible by MyWeb Grocer, the leading provider of digital grocery and CPG solutions.
