Allison started her career as a buyer for a department store chain in 1978. After managing the Limited’s flagship store in San Francisco, she was offered a position as sales rep, which gave her an entirely different perspective. It was here that she first worked with independent retailers and saw a tremendous need for education. As a result, she started her own retail consulting business in 1985. In addition to consulting, she has lectured and written articles for various retail trade publications. Allison joined Management One™ as part of the Reedy Consulting and Analysis™ team in February of 2010. Allison also enjoys problem solving with her clients in areas other than planning including employee compensation and training, social media, marketing and vendor relations. She is proud to have clients that have been working with her for as long as 27 years. As one of Management One's™ top consulting teams, Reedy Consulting has won a number of awards including “Best Client Retention” and “Highest Annual Sales”.
