Amanda Beshears Returns to Retail Strategies
BIRMINGHAM, AL (March 1, 2023) – Retail Strategies is excited to announce the return of Amanda Beshears, a former employee of Retail Strategies, who is rejoining the team after several years away. Amanda returns to the company as a Retail Academy Associate.
Amanda first joined the company’s marketing department in 2013 and quickly became an integral part of the team, helping to grow the municipal consulting company from a regional company to a national brand. Her energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge of the retail real estate industry made her an invaluable part of the team.
“We couldn’t be happier to have Amanda back at Retail Strategies,” said Mead Silsbee, chief financial officer at Retail Strategies. “Our Retail Academy platform is one of the fastest growing divisions and adding Amanda to the team will help capitalize on the potential we see for that platform.”
Beshears’ new role as Retail Academy Associate will involve developing educational content for community leaders that attend Retail Academy, an education platform that teaches community leaders about the retail attraction and development process. Using her experience, she will create client deliverables, aerial maps, retail development plans, and plan workshop events for clients.
Throughout her career she has worked with hundreds of cities, focusing on their strategic planning needs, and creating their marketing materials and customized research.
“I am so excited to be part of the Retail Strategies team again,” said Beshears. “The company has evolved so much since I left in 2015 and I can’t wait to be part of growing the company and elevating our client’s experience with Retail Academy.”
