Senior Analyst, Wayfair Promotions
The Promotions team drives outsized growth for the business by showcasing the best of Wayfair (e.g., special offers, curated assortments, attractive value propositions like fast delivery and financing) through fresh content that reinforces our brand and fuels personalization across customer touchpoints. This team quarterbacks the company’s approach towards major shopping holidays and key brand moments like “Way Day”. They accomplish all of this by working directly with suppliers on exposure strategies and funding plans. Promotions, like Category Management, is also a general management track, but with a stronger orientation towards both Marketing and Merchandising. Promotions category leaders, and their teams, are held accountable for a promotional “P&L”, which is driven by the quality of their category exposure strategies, funding plans and content portfolio.
