In Charge Talks: Woody Woodward

In this episode of our In Charge Talks series, Kirkland’s CEO Woody Woodward discusses with Geert De Lombaerde how COVID accelerated his efforts to reposition the retailer in the home decor market and reinvigorate the organization. “Sometimes, when you’re faced with danger or drama, you go into action mode,” Woodward says.

Woodward, the Post’s 2021 CEO of the Year, also talks about what has been relatively easy for him during the pandemic, what surprised him as he and his team started difficult conversations with suppliers and landlords and where he finds knowledge and inspiration on his journey.
