Interview With Signet EVP And Global CIO Howard Melnick

"Howard melnik. Welcome to second ovation. Thank you peter adding me. That's a pleasure. I thought we begin a howard with your your role. You're the executive vice president global chief information officer of signet. And i wonder if you could take a moment for those who may be less familiar with the company. Can you provide a brief overview as to what you all do. Let me tell you a little bit about my role and a little about signet. So i i've been at signet for about two and a half years and drew me to signet was that the company was launching transformation with a digital focus and a real customer first mentality. My sweet spot has always been integrating business and technology to create value as you mentioned. I'm accountable for information technology as well as analytics programs really focusing on things like being customer centric digital first or accelerating our cloud adoption and using analytics with machine learning in ai the Overall focus is really on driving business value. I part very closely with both our chief innovation officer arner chief digital officer To really create a world class customer experience. And so peter as you mentioned many people may not know the name sick but you're probably really familiar with the brands that we represent so first. Six cygnets mission is to celebrate life and express love so kind of what a what a great place to work at a particularly in these times where the world's largest retailer diamond jewelry and the largest specialty retailer in the us the uk and canada the brands that we have our kay jewelers zales. Jared piercing pagoda people's jewelers in canada h samuel and ernest jones in the uk and james allen which is actually a digitally native company which was a out of tel. Aviv's will thank you for that overview howard. I appreciate it Would love to talk a little bit about your your current strategy. I know from our past conversations that you've talked about the aspects like the path brilliants Some of the omni channel type aspects that you're doing and so on maybe you can dive a little bit further into some of the details of those if you would okay. Great peter so. I let me give a little background which i think really helps frame up the business strategy so signet. The group was founded in nineteen forty nine and grew organically until the late eighties early nineties. Back in february of two thousand fourteen signet acquired zales corporation which was based in dallas. And then two thousand seventeen we purchased to net. Which are the owner of the company. James allen which really starts to be our innovation hub so these acquisitions were great because they gave us breath and scale but gave me the ability now to say i have multiple technologies. Or how do i leverage that scale but at the same time be able to create really unique experiences by brand for our customers so with that we born are packed. Brilliant strategy now if you go back and think five or ten years ago. Julia was not a big on line. Purchase category jewelries intricate people. It wasn't a book and so we started to develop a strategy back in two thousand eighteen. That had three strategic pillars the customer first on the channel with a digital focus and building a culture of agility inefficiency and so peter when we last spoke which was about eighteen months ago we were just in kind of wrapping up to your one and one for us was fixing operational issues building a foundation getting us ready ear to came and that's really what strengthening our foundation rebuilding on the channel capabilities. We're actually getting us more product diversity and starting to really focus on innovation and then in year three where we sit now when we really were gaining momentum cova hit and coded for us was actually an accelerate. I would say in two months of kobe. We probably did two years worth of work. And so many companies kind of shutdown. We really started to accelerate areas of digital growth. And i think what we've seen is customer treads also accelerated things like buying line up in store curbside pickup. These are things that were kind of emerging at at slow pace but have really accelerated. I think in a post covid world are going to last forever very interesting and talk. Talk a bit if you will about the the way in which that. It strategy that path the brilliance supports the broader enterprise strategy with paths brilliance laid out. We developed an it strategy that had four key areas. I was when i called fix improved so a certain areas that we inherited that we wanted to make better Around people process technology data than the next area was with multiple brands. What are the areas. I should harmonize and then modernize and then the last area was really around innovation when we think of innovation innovation for us isn't just catch up. Its halloway leapfrog the competition. What can i do to really position as well so let me walk you through each one of those areas in some of the give some examples of things we did so if we look at one of the first area which was fixing improve. I'm a big fan of jim collins. The author good to great and one of the things he says. Is you get the right people on the bus. So the first thing we did is get the right people on the bus and then we started to look at our operating model and so since we had grown up with multiple banners multiple campuses traditionally were organized by technology by geography with some people sitting in akron in some people sitting in dallas. What we wanted to do is organize by foce. And so we started to make that shift where e-commerce team moved from traditional project teams to product teams but in other areas we started to leverage the concept centers of excellence particularly around areas like integration. Devops testing analytics.

"The vaccination rate here is among the lowest in the country, just seventy. Eight percent because it's explicitly contagious, and we have a large unvaccinated population. This can spread like wildfire. Doctor Allen Melnik is the public health director for Clark county. That's one reason why we don't begin the shots until twelve months. He says the effort to track were infected people have gone and then alert those who might have come into contact with them is extremely time consuming. The previous was in Vancouver clinic is the time state health officials from Washington, and Idaho, and the CDC have been helping out. The outbreak has already cost the state more than a million dollars and strain the county's resources. It would be one thing if we just had to do this for a week or two we've already been at this for over a month and given the incubation period the time from exposure, so the time developed symptoms. You got one group of people get exposed then expose another group of people seven or twenty one days later, and this thing propagates overtime. Measles was officially declared eliminated from the US in the year two thousand but domestic outbreaks continued to pop up last year there were three hundred and forty nine measles cases in the US most renew York and New Jersey in unvaccinated orthodox Jewish communities. Internationally, the World Health Organization has said in Madagascar there have been more than nine hundred deaths from an outbreak that started last September. And in two thousand eighteen measles. Infections tripled in Europe. To eighty three thousand the bulk in Ukraine, Dr Melnik says the Washington strain is the same as the one in eastern Europe, along as measles exist as long as people travel in in and out of communities, and as long as we have unvaccinated populations is inevitable that we're going to have measles outbreaks while officials work to contain the measles outbreak in Clark county here in Olympia at the state capital.

"Yes. And the other thing about stone is, you know, there was a report earlier this year about him, and he got really angry about it. And he said, nobody should be guessing my feelings because only I know or a certain select few people really know what they are. So you have to respect that you have to understand that he likes it that way. And in a lot of ways if you try to look at them and pick it what he's saying, you're guessing my history is that. When things are that, quiet. It's either really good or really bad. But one of the things I do believe is that in this particular case both of those players, and even Ottawa's feelings on may be single and CC to have changed at times at times. I think some of those players have been like, I'm gone and other times, I think that some of those players felt you know, what maybe not, and I do think Mark stolen legitimately loves being an Ottawa. And those guys wanna keep them. I've had a couple of people tell me in their opinion that marked stone would be the final straw for a lot of hockey fans in Ottawa when you consider what this team went through one shot away from the Stanley Cup final a couple of years ago to a disastrous follow up season two losing the captains who off ice issues to the video with Viet ski and Melnick to the, you know, ham fisted attempts to curry favor with the fans over and. Again, it hasn't worked. You've talked about how that relationship is frayed. If not already fractured woods stone be a final nail for some fans. Should they lose him? It's a tough one. It's going to be a really tough one. I think the Sanders know that now I had this conversation with another executive and another city, and he said that there's a lot of places where if you put out Thomas about Brady could Chuck Josh Norris. Who was having a really good year until he got hurt before. We started this podcast. You talked about what Logan Brown and Bathurst and they're doing in Belleville right now any points in four game. Yes. They are lighting up the American League right now, those two yes, they're doing really, well, there are a lot of people would look at that prospect base for their teams and say boy, you know, they're really in a good shape. But because it's Eugene Melnyk their fans have a crisis of consumer confidence. And they don't believe in it. You know, he said there will be a lot of teams if they had that group of young players, they'd feel really good about themselves. But the overall situation has prevented that their fans from seeing it, and he thinks that's the toughest thing that auto a has to beat. It's not the objective look at the roster. It's the look of the owner. It's a scenario where no matter what you gene Melnik does or says, it will not be greeted favourably case in point where we saw last week after recorded the podcast the statement came out about spending to the cap in a couple of seasons, which wasn't really greeted with within the adoration. Let's just say from Ottawa Senators fans, what was your thought on that one by the way when it came out the gene Melnik statement about spending to the cap eventually, well, I was surprised that chemo during a game. That was one thing that you know, we're seeing there that's our Wednesday game. We're watching it. And all the sudden the statement comes out and you're trying to pay attention to the game. And then you're trying to parse the meaning of the statement play, Jeff the other thing I learned about that is. Sanders fans hate it. When you gene Melnik announces anything in Toronto. And you know, he's got a lot of business history. Obviously in Toronto, and you know, one person from the organization, they defend him and said, look like that's where a lot of our sponsors are based and they did it at the Hockey Hall of fame was a special event. But again, it goes back to what we were talking about before. Because it's him. It's a problem..

"Today's topic is title nine or more precisely title. I x at the end of this hour. You will understand all of my friends out? There will understand so much of what is wrong with the top down government. We have with the government in Washington with the regulatory state with the bullying in Washington. And you will learn the root of it all is as it always is or often is the income tax. What is title nine? Why do you care so much about it to help us understand title nine and the regulatory state, and it's below did influence on life in America. I am happy. Proud to welcome to the show ship. Melnik Shep is the Thomas p odeal professor of American politics. At Boston College, chef has taught at Harvard and at Brandeis he is the author of the transformation of title nine. Chefs studies focus on the intersection of law and politics. Shep? Welcome to the show this morning. Thanks so much for having me on. Now. Your book is the transformation of title nine. I'm going to start to get our audience into the game. I'm gonna start with two questions title nine of what and the transformation from what to what? So I show up. What is title nine title nine of what? And why do we care? Good questions. Title nine is one section of omnibus education amendments passed in one thousand nine hundred seventy two this was really a hodgepodge is a changes in education laws. Title nine itself, simply says it any educational institution that receives federal five cannot discriminate on the basis of sex. What that meant was left unclear. It was very little discussion of it in congress of the time when president Nixon signed that legislation. He didn't even notice the importance of title nine nor did the New York Times when it reviewed its story on the passage of the legislation. So it's a very simple prohibition. Open ended and we've been arguing about its meaning ever since. Now, an important word shop at to highlight this for our audience a worried, we will be coming back to a lot is the operative verb, which is discrimination. We cannot. A recipient of federal financial assistance cannot discriminate and the other important phrases under any education program or activity. So this is this is a prevision one small provision small in terms of number of words, a small position in a lodge education Bill that simply says you can't discriminate on the basis of sex. Well that ought to have gotten at the time. And I think you said that it did a big shrug because everybody who reads this in nineteen seventy-two would say, well, of course, we can't discriminate, and we have no intention of discriminating. And we don't think we do discriminate. So we start with b nine legislation that sorta states the obvious and it says discrimination based upon sex. Of course, we will learn. During this show. I want to give the audience coming attractions the word discrimination on the basis of sex the word sex becomes a very pernicious word in the context of title nine. Okay. So we start with title nine pretty basic stuff. Yes. Can't discriminate. If if you're a school, of course, and you are receiving federal financial assistance now ship. I'd like to take a slight digression just for a moment this Kate discriminate. If you receive federal funds. Now, the reason it is keyed to receiving federal funds is I think it's true. But we could discuss this for a moment that congress lacked the power to. Affect the behavior of private schools in the country and many of the colleges are of course, privates colleges. And it's the statute simply said a private school can't discriminate on the basis of sex. That might not be constitutional is that a fair guess, and why is the hook of receiving federal assistance so important. That's a really good question. What I'd say is using the hook federal funds certainly made it far less controversial. So that was an easy thing to add. If they had bad more prescriptive than saying, whether you receive federal funds or not doesn't matter that would have been much more controversial now one thing that happened at the same time. It's title nine was passed was the supreme court was increasingly saying that discriminating on the basis of sex is unconstitutional. So there was a big change in constitutional law..
