He helped to launch the group’s Advanced Retail Strategy Program, an executive education program at the UCLA Anderson School of Management for industry leaders from North America and Latin America. He also assisted in initiating RNG’s Retail Innovation Series at MIT, an innovation program for industry leaders responsible for their company’s five- to 15-year outlook.
Before joining RNG, Beeler spent several years in Washington, D.C. with the Grocery Manufacturers Association, where as senior manager of sales and sales promotions he managed three member committees in the areas of reverse logistics, coupon promotions and sales agencies.
