Dan Riley, the former Vice President of Operations of Ralphs/Kroger’s who was responsible for managing $50 million in sales each week is starting a-fresh as a motivational and leadership speaker.  As the leader in Retail Operations for one of the largest divisions of a top North American food retailer, Dan Riley is recognized as an expert in the food industry, as someone who knows the industry inside-out.  Known as The Inspired Grocer, Dan motivates audiences while giving an overview of an ever-changing and always challenging retail landscape. He has managed, led, and most of all, inspired literally thousands of managers and employees. However, Dan’s rise to the top wasn’t exactly a direct ascent!

In and out of college for almost eight years, he eventually ran into an industrial psychologist. After being tested for “promotion suitability” time and time again, he was continually turned away. Rather than settling for mediocrity, Dan changed the trajectory of his life and career. Since those fateful meetings, Dan’s ambition, curiosity and self-development have resulted in numerous promotions, and given him a truly unique and valuable perspective on food retailing and leadership.  His story is that of the incredible journey from bag-boy to Vice President. It is guaranteed to inspire and transform both rookie and seasoned leaders alike.  His tale transcends food retailing, and speaks to aspiring leaders across all spectrums.
